As first reported [Zhao, J. H. 2007. "gap: Genetic Analysis Package". J Stat Soft 23(8):118. <doi:10.18637/jss.v023.i08>], it is designed as an integrated package for genetic data analysis of both population and family data. Currently, it contains functions for sample size calculations of both populationbased and familybased designs, probability of familial disease aggregation, kinship calculation, statistics in linkage analysis, and association analysis involving genetic markers including haplotype analysis with or without environmental covariates. Over years, the package has been developed inbetween many projects hence also in line with the name (gap).
