NAMEunknown - identify possible genotypes for unknowns
SYNOPSISA program to rapidly identify which genotypes are possible for individuals typed as unknowns in the input pedigree. unknown [ -cl ]
DESCRIPTIONunknown infers possible genotypes and mating combinations for parents with unknown genotypes for ilink(1), mlink(1) and linkmap(1).
OPTIONS-c Use conditional allele frequencies. -l Choose a good set of loop breakers automatically.
RETURN VALUE0 Successful completion
ERRORS10 File not found 255 Failure
EXAMPLESNormally, unknown(1) is run immediately prior to its sister programs, ilink(1), mlink(1) and linkmap(1), like this: unknown mlink
FILESunknown(1) reads the two files pedfile.dat and datafile.dat as its own input and produces various temporary files that are used as input to the next program. These temporary files are ipedfile.dat, upedfile.dat, speedfile.dat and newspeedfile.dat.
NOTESunknown(1) is part of the FASTLINK package, which is a re- implementation of the LINKAGE suite of computer tools that help investigate genetic linkage as first proposed G.M. Lathrop, J.M. Lalouel, C. Julier, and J. Ott.
