[…] cation. Early probabilistic methods, such as Mapping and Assembly with Quality (MAQ) [] and SOAPsnp [], used fixed prior values for heterozygote probabilities and nucleotide-read error probabilities. SeqEM [] introduces multiple-sample genotype calling via an adaptive approach employing the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm to estimate the model parameters. Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (HWE) c […]
