Vintage Mendel

Ken Lange's vintage statistical genetics software developed prior to 2000. Mendel 3.3.5 is still used when compiling SimWalk 2.91.


SimWalk2 v2.91

Stochastic Statistical Analysis of Qualitative Traits. Available analyses include: Haplotyping, Parametric Linkage, Non-Parametric Linkage (NPL), Identity-by-Descent (IBD), and Mistyping. SimWalk2 analyzes large pedigrees using MCMC estimation techniques.

AUTOSCAN automatically creates data files, uses MAKEPED (converts pre-linkage format files to linkage format), DOWNFREQ (estimates allele frequencies from pedigree data), and PEDCHECK (Mendelian checking) programs and finally starts statistical analyses via the ANALYZE package. ANALYZE performs parametric linkage analysis (MLINK), nonparametric affected sib-pair analysis (ASP), family-based association analysis (TDT, HRRR), and homogeneity testing (HOMOG). Input files for AUTOSCAN are the pedigree files for all chromosomes,the disease model file, the number of loci file, and the ANALYZE input file.The AUTOSCAN also allows easy handling of several phenotype traits and trait features by only changing the disease model file after each run.
