Quadriallelic 3 56

  1. In this table, is an estimated vector of the genotypic values of different composite diplotypes and the residual variance. The largest log-likelihood and/or the smallest AIC or BIC value calculated is thought to correspond to the most likely risk haplotypes and the optimal number of risk haplotypes.
