Comparative assessment of methods for estimating individual genome wide homozygosity by descent from human genomic data

BMC Genomics

DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-11-139

[…] This study provides the most comprehensive comparison of different genome-wide homozygosity measures to date. Our findings suggest that the most commonly used single-point methods (FPLINK and FACD) do not measure much more than the simple proportion of heterozygous loci (multilocus heterozygosity), but they do have the advantage of not being sensitive to the presence of linkage disequilibr […]
