[…] ; jöreskog ). while these programs offer great flexibility in model specification, they are less well suited to the analysis of data from large and complex pedigrees. as an alternative, we used the mendel software package (lange et al. ) for genetic data analyses. we constructed and implemented an algorithm which took the ntr administrative database (boomsma et al. ) as input and gave […]

[…] diagnosis from relatives of carriers of brca1/2 founder mutations (probands), and cumulative risks were estimated using breslow method. we also estimated the penetrance of brca1 mutations with the mendel package for statistical analyses, taking into account ascertainment by conditioning on proband diagnoses, . in short, a cox proportional hazards model was fitted to censored data on age […]

[…] different chromosomes., for each probe, we estimated the heritability of gene expression using two approaches: a variance components model relying on known family relationships as implemented in mendel [] and a variance decomposition based on observed genotypic similarities among individuals as implemented in gcta []. both analyses included age, sex, batch and peer factors as covariates. […]

[…] data. for examples, vitesse implemented the well-known elston–stewart's peeling algorithm for computing the likelihood of pedigrees in linkage analysis (elston and stewart, ; o'connell and weeks, ). mendel can run pedigree analysis for quantitative traits (lange et al., ). sage sage () can be used for pedigree analysis of binary traits. based on the score statistics and generalized estimating […]

[…] newly-proposed method differs from previously-proposed implementations. here we compare the performance of several lmm approaches (and software implementations, including emmax, genabel, fast-lmm, mendel, gemma and mmm) via their application to a genome-wide association study of visceral leishmaniasis in 348 brazilian families comprising 3626 individuals (1972 genotyped). the implementations […]
