We are pleased to announce that our haplotyping programs SIMCROSS and
SIMWALK are now available in the pub directory by anonymous ftp to
watson.hgen.pitt.edu (url: ftp://watson.hgen.pitt.edu/pub ). These
are programs for generating optimal haplotype configurations on
general pedigrees using a likelihood-based approach to correctly
take intermarker recombination fractions into account.
These two programs are described briefly in our Letter to the Editor
which just appeared in the June issue of the American Journal of
Weeks DE, Sobel E, O'Connell JR, Lange K (1995) Computer
programs for multilocus haplotyping of general pedigrees.
American Journal of Human Genetics 56:1506-1507.
and are described in depth in the forthcoming article:
Sobel E, Lange K, O'Connell JR, Weeks DE (1995) Haplotyping
algorithms. In: Speed TP, Waterman MS (eds) Genetic mapping
and DNA sequencing. Springer-Verlag, New York, in press.
If you have any questions or comments regarding these two programs,
please feel free to contact me.
