paramlink: Parametric Linkage Analysis in R

Parametric linkage analysis and other likelihood-based pedigree analyses based on the Elston-Stewart algorithm, including singlepoint LOD scores, power analysis and computation of marker genotype distributions. Multipoint analysis is provided through a convenient MERLIN wrapper. Includes many utility functions for creating, manipulating and plotting pedigrees, markers and linkage results.
