Full Name

Linkage and Association Modeling in Pedigrees

Version

0.0.9

Description

LAMP carries out parametric association analysis in samples of unrelated individuals, trios or large families. In addition to a test-statistic, a genetic model is estimated for each SNP. The approach is based on retrospective likelihood and can be used to analyze selected samples.
