Genotype Imputation with Thousands of Genomes

PMCID: 3276165
PMID: 22384356
DOI: 10.1534/g3.111.001198

[…] otype in a dataset, Beagle can run the calculations on a smaller set of clusters. Similar state-reduction techniques are used by GERBIL (Kimmel and Shamir 2005), fastPHASE (Scheet and Stephens 2006), GEDI (), and other related methods. By contrast, the basic HMM used by IMPUTE2 and MaCH includes a state for every haplotype. Using all of the states makes computation intractable, which is why IMPUTE […]


Inference of locus specific ancestry in closely related populations

PMCID: 2687951
PMID: 19477991
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btp197

[…] ly employed to solve the imputation problem, and HMMs have been amongst the most popular. Since the scope of our article is not the imputation problem, we will focus this small scale analysis only on GEDI, a recently developed HMM-based method for genotype imputation (Kennedy et al., ). GEDI uses an HMM similar to the one of Kimmel and Shamir (), Marchini et al. () and Rastas et al. () trained usi […]
