Possible Triangle Constraint z For any genetic model, we expect ASPs to be more similar than unselected pairs of siblings. z More precisely, Holmans (1993) showed that for any genetic model z 2 ¼ z 1 ½ and z 1 2 z 0 z 0 ¼

Further Improvements … z All these methods lose information when a marker is uninformative in a particular family… z Today, we will see how to use neighboring markers to extract more information about IBD.
Intuition For Multipoint Analysis z IBD changes infrequently along the chromosome z Neighboring markers can help resolve ambiguities about IBD sharing z In the Risch approach, they might ensure that, effectively, only one w is non-zero 22 21 12 11 1 1
