This repository contains R code for a package implementing the Smooth Descent algorithm. Smooth Descent is a map-cleaning algorithm that can calculate identity by descent probabilities, predict genotyping errors and impute corrected genotypes. By applying this method, new genetic maps can be estimated to improve genetic map quality. Preprint of this software can be found here: Therese Navarro et al. 2022

The algorithm is based on SMOOTH (van Os et al. 2005), but adds some functionality to it.
