SYNOPSISlodscore [options] ipedfile.dat pedfile.dat
DESCRIPTIONThis manual page documents briefly the lodscore command. In fact this is a very raw intend to provide a manpage because the Debian GNU/Linux distribution requires each program to have a manpage. Any enhancement would be greatly apreciated.
lodscore is part of the fastlink software package.
Lodscore compares -2log(likelihood) at the locally optimal theta to -2log(likelihood) at a theta that is 1/2 in every component (i.e. each locus unlinked to all the rest). In LINKAGE ILINK more likelihood function evaluations are done after the last printed iteration line, but these likelihood function evaluations are unnecessary (see paper2.ps from the fastlink-doc Debian package for more details).
