paternity-package: Paternity testing using SNP markers

Description Details Author(s) References Examples

Description

The package calculates composite paternity index based on SNP markers. The paternity index are calculation based on no mutations or no technical error. High quality data, preferably confirmed genotypes with multiple assays are desirable. The package is for research purpose only not for legal or diagnostic purpose.
