    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

In the study of large outbred pedigrees with many founders, individual bi-allelic markers, such as SNP markers, carry little information. After phasing the marker genotypes, multi-allelic loci consisting of groups of closely linked markers can be identified, which are called “haploblocks”. Here, we describe PediHaplotyper, an R package capable of assigning consistent alleles to such haploblocks, allowing for missing and incorrect SNP data. These haploblock genotypes are much easier to interpret by the human investigator than the original SNP data and also allow more efficient QTL analyses that require less memory and computation time.
