ASPBay-package: Bayesian method with affected sib pairs

Description Author(s) References


This package permits to select in a genomic region a subset of SNPs which is likely to contain the true causal SNPs or a SNPs which tag them. Then, we exploite the linkage information contained in affected sib-pairs data to make inference on the causal SNPs in the region using Bayesian method.
