PDT is designed to look at both linkage and association in extended pedigrees. It will perform allele-specific analysis and genotype-specific analysis for single markers. In addition, PDT will now run analyses for combinations of genotypes over multiple marker loci. This is not the same as haplotype analysis, however, as no phase information is utilized.
pdt is intended to be run interactively on helix.
PDT was developed at Duke University. The PDT website seems to have disappeared.
