magnusdv/ribd: Pedigree-based Relatedness Coefficients

Recursive algorithms for computing various relatedness coefficients, including pairwise kinship, kappa and identity coefficients. Both autosomal and X-linked coefficients are computed. Founders are allowed to be inbred. In addition to the standard pairwise coefficients, ribd also computes a range of lesser-known coefficients, including generalised kinship coefficients (Karigl (1981) <doi:10.1111/j.1469-1809.1981.tb00341.x>; Weeks and Lange (1988) <>), two-locus coefficients (Thompson (1988) <doi:10.1093/imammb/5.4.261>) and multi-person coefficients. This package is part of the ped suite, a collection of packages for pedigree analysis with 'pedtools' as the core package for creating and handling pedigree objects.
