Linkage Analysis

Linkage analysis uses familial genetic data to look for disease transmission in families. Such analysis can help to pinpoint areas of the genome to be followed up with more detailed mapping or sequencing. We are able to combine the information from families with genetic data along with results from other types of studies, including case-control, as well. Our analyses include:

  • Analysis of familial data including large, multi-generational extended families and smaller families
  • QC of genetic data including verifying relationship status within the pedigree
  • Calculation of parametric and non-parametric LOD scores
  • Interpretation of linkage intervals found in analysis
  • Family plots including haplotype results
  • Customized reports
