Title: Identity by Descent in 'Unrelated' Individuals
Author(s): Sharon Browning*+
Companies: University of Washington
Keywords: haplotype frequency modelling ; genetic sequence data ; identity by descent

Short segments of identity by descent (IBD) between individuals with no known relationship can be detected using genome-wide genetic data and recently developed statistical methodology. The detected IBD segments are useful for IBD mapping, heritability estimation, haplotype phase inference, genotype imputation, and inference of demographic history. I will describe the principles behind methods for IBD segment detection and give an overview of several applications.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
