[…] D probabilities. IBD calls can be made from IBD probabilities using a thresholding approach in which all probabilities exceeding a threshold are output as IBD. Alternatively, methods such as DASH [], EMI [], and IBD-Groupon [] leverage the clique nature of IBD graphs to output cliques over a region as opposed to IBD pairs. The choice of IBD calling method is a function of the objective of the stud […]
