Arguments

intable

is the name of the acm table

gcrit

is the threshold of genetic distance such that two lanes are matching if and only if the genetic distance between them is less than gcrit. Is used to get a list of ids for subjects who have gd distance less than gcrit

Value

A matrix with two colums of fingerprint IDs. Each line represents a match according to gcrit.

Note

call_gd2 doesn't work for lambda=0

Pass the result of this function to and pass this result to clusters to synthesize the results
