ALOHOMORA: a tool for linkage analysis using 10K SNP array data.
SUMMARYALOHOMORA is a software tool designed to facilitate genome-wide linkage studies performed with high-density single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) marker panels such as the Affymetrix GeneChip(R) Human Mapping 10K Array. Genotype data are converted into appropriate formats for a number of common linkage programs and subjected to standard quality control routines before linkage runs are started. ALOHOMORA is written in Perl and may be used to perform state-of-the-art linkage scans in small and large families with any genetic model. Options for using different genetic maps or ethnicity-specific allele frequencies are implemented. Graphic outputs of whole-genome multipoint LOD score values are provided for the entire dataset as well as for individual families.
AVAILABILITYALOHOMORA is available free of charge for non-commercial research institutions. For more details, see http://gmc.mdc-berlin.de/alohomora/
