Combined Likelihood Ratio Test for Candidate Gene Studies, Version 1.0

The Combined Likelihood Ratio Test (Combined_LRT) is an extension of the original likelihood ratio test (LRT) proposed by Weinberg et al. (1999) to test child genotype risk, maternal genotype effects and parent-of-origin (POO) effects. This program uses single locus genotype data from case-parent triads to fit a log-linear model with genotype and imprinting effects at a candidate gene. The model is fit to bi-allelic data with possible missing genotype data for the mother or father, and includes sibling genotypes. Likelihood ratio tests for parameter effects are obtained from program output.
