kin.cohort: Analysis of Kin-Cohort Studies

Analysis of kin-cohort studies. kin.cohort provides estimates of age-specific cumulative risk of a disease for carriers and noncarriers of a mutation. The cohorts are retrospectively built from relatives of probands for whom the genotype is known. Currently the method of moments and marginal maximum likelihood are implemented. Confidence intervals are calculated from bootstrap samples. Most of the code is a translation from previous 'MATLAB' code by N. Chatterjee.
