LINKAGE-IMPRINT

Record added by Jurg Ott (the original Rockefeller list)

Full Name

LINKAGE allowing for IMPRINITING

Version

January 2005

Description

We have developed a parametric model-based approach to analyzing pedigree data for genomic imprinting. We have modified widely used LINKAGE program to incorporate imprinting. In addition, the LINKAGE-IMPRINT program allows for the use of sex-specific recombination in the analysis, which is of particular importance in a genome-wide analysis for imprinted genes.
