PAPA 2.0 – Package for the Analysis of Parental Allocation

PAPA 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

PAPA (Package for the Analysis of Parental Allocation) is “is a parental pair allocation and simulator program. The allocation method is based on the likelihood of a parental pair producing the multilocus genotype found in the offspring being tested, which will be referred to as the breeding likelihood.

Famsphere 0.4 – Parental Allocation from known Genotypic Pools

Famsphere 0.4

:: DESCRIPTION

FamSphere is a C++ computer program that implements a distance-based method to allocate families based on co-dominant molecular marker information. FamSphere models an offspring as a 2n dimensional (n = loci number) sphere with a center (the genotype) and a radius (the mutation or genotyping error allowed). Thus, an individual will be a putative parent if it falls inside the sphere of a given offspring. The model is a formalization of the exclusion method taking into account genotyping errors or mutation. Indeed, when multiple-paternity is not excluded there are rules that provide a way to assign paternity, which is not present in the exclusion method.

PASOS 1.0 – Parental Allocation of Singles in Open Systems

PASOS 1.0

:: DESCRIPTION

PASOS (Parental Allocation of Singles in Open Systems) is “a parental allocation program designed to identify collected parents based on individual multilocus genotypes while detecting missing parents when a proportion of them have not been collected. It makes use of restricted error tolerance in order to distinguish between a partially incorrect genotype from a false parent’s genotype.
