FLexible Ordered SubSet analysis
FLOSS performs ordered subset analysis using MERLIN’s ouput “.lod” file created with the –perFamily option. Ordered subset analysis uses covariate information to identify a more homogenous subset of families for linkage analysis. The homogeneous subset of families does not need to be specified a priori, and the covariates can include environmental exposures, quantitative traits, or linkage scores at another locus in the genome. The evidence for linkage is evaluated with a permutation test.
