SimWalk2 v2.91

README :: Online Docs :: Download

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.

Visit the CONVEXCLUSTER site

CONVEXCLUSTER is an implementation of convex clustering, a principled clustering method that is appropriate for dynamically inferring clusters in a manner similar to standard hierarchical clustering. In contrast to hierarchical clustering however, convex clustering is more accurate, robust to outliers, and versatile. As for versatility, convex clustering allows users to specify weights informed by expert domain knowledge and a desired level of granularity. CONVEXCLUSTER includes code written in OpenCL so that users with nVidia or ATI GPUs can run convex clustering efficiently on high dimensional data. The program is currently available as beta and can be checked out from our Google Code repository with a SVN client from the link below. Please submit any questions regarding usage, bugs. etc. to the link below via the Issue tracker on the Google Code repository.

Identification of conserved words in DNA sequence



Visit the Autoscan site

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.
