SOLOMON is a comprehensive parentage program that implements Bayes’ theorem to perform a wide variety of parentage analyses. No information about the number of parents sampled or genotyping error rates are required. Parentage analyses are implemented for scenarios with (1) no known parents, (2) 1 known parent (e.g., known mothers), and (3) known parent-pairs. SOLOMON also performs Mendelian exclusion, a priori power analyses, and can be used to created simulated data sets with user-specified numbers of true parent-offspring pairs, unrelated individuals, and genotyping error.
