Pedigree Analysis in R gives an introduction to the theory of relatedness and covers a range of applications in forensic and medical genetics. The book's material was developed through teaching courses on genetic relatedness, pedigree analysis and R, and offers insights from a decade of research activities in forensic and medical genetics. The R code in the book uses the ped suite, a unified collection of packages for pedigree analysis, developed by the author. All code examples are given in full, allowing accurate reproduction of figures and results. At the end of each chapter, a selection of exercises encourages the reader to explore further and perform their own analyses. Introduction to the theory of genetic relatedness, richly illustrated with classic and novel examples In-depth case studies including kinship testing, pedigree reconstruction, linkage analysis and clinical segregation analysis Easy-to-follow R code with explanations Based on the ped suite packages for pedigree analysis in R Suitable for R users at all levels, including complete beginners Exercises after each chapter

Novel Approaches to the Analysis of Family Data in Genetic Epidemiology

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for complex disorders with large case-control populations have been performed on hundreds of traits in more than 1200 published studies (http://www.genome.gov/gwastudies/) but the variants detected by GWAS account for little of the heritability of these traits, leading to an increasing interest in using family based designs. While GWAS studies are designed to find common variants with low to moderate attributable risks, family based studies are expected to find rare variants with high attributable risk. Because family-based designs can better control both genetic and environmental background, this study design is robust to heterogeneity and population stratification. Moreover, in family-based analysis, the background genetic variation can be modeled to control the residual variance which could increase the power to identify disease associated rare variants. Analysis of families can also help us gain knowledge about disease transmission and inheritance patterns. Although a family-based design has the advantage of being robust to false positives, novel and powerful methods to analyze families in genetic epidemiology continue to be needed, especially for the interaction between genetic and environmental factors associated with disease. Moreover, with the rapid development of sequencing technology, advances in approaches to the design and analysis of sequencing data in families are also greatly needed. The 11 articles in this book all introduce new methodology and, using family data, substantial new findings are presented in the areas of infectious diseases, diabetes, eye traits, autism spectrum disorder and prostate cancer.

The papers in this volume were presented as part of the University of Kansas Department of Anthropology Distinguished Lecture Program on Anthro pological Genetics. Consecutively, each contributor spent approximately a week on the campus at Lawrence participating in a seminar. The contributors to this volume were not on campus at one time, but visited us on alternating weeks; hence, a symposium-type interchange was not possible between all participants. However, the students and faculty of Kansas University acted as a sounding board. This volume can be considered a companion and continuation of Methods and Theories of Anthropological Genetics, which was based upon a symposium on the state of the art in 1971. This present volume reflects what we consider to be some of the advances and current developments in anthropological genetics since 1973. Emphasis has shifted, to some degree, away from population struc ture analysis (as depicted in Crawford and Workman) to genetic epidemiology. However, population structure still remains a fertile and ongoing area of research with many theoretical questions still remaining unanswered.
