The program sequenceLD analyzes sequence data. It obtains an approximation to the likelihood of a summary of the data (as such it can be thought of as a marginal likelihood approach). It does not use all the information in the data, but computationally it can be substantially more efficient than the full-likelihood methods (and hence able to analyze larger data sets).
