Probability Computations on Pedigrees

An implementation of the Elston-Stewart algorithm for calculating pedigree likelihoods given genetic marker data (Elston and Stewart (1971) ). The standard algorithm is extended to allow inbred founders. 'pedprobr' is part of the ped suite, a collection of packages for pedigree analysis in R, based on 'pedtools' for handling pedigrees and markers. Mutation modelling is supported by the 'pedmut' package.
