Parental Prediction / Assignment Program

FAP (Family Assignment Program) performs two related tasks using exclusion principles:

  1. Predicts the resolving power of specific parental data sets (nuclear and mitochondrial) for unambiguously discriminating among families / groups of families
  2. Assigns family of origin to progeny from genotype (nuclear and mitochondrial) data.

The FAP package is provided as a zip file.  When extracted, the instruction manual file is copied to the default directory and three sub-directories Programs’, ‘Inputs’ & ‘Outputs’ are created containing executables and demonstration files.

For further guidance on the FAP please contact John Taggart jbt1@stir.ac.uk.

FAP 3.5 - Bug Report Jan 08:

When assigning offspring with 12 or more loci, FAP3.5 (and earlier compiled versions) may indicate a mismatch where, in fact, none exists, particularly when mismatch tolerance is set to zero - i.e. exact matches only to be resolved. This bug does not affect assignments made using 11 or less loci. Version 3.6 (available for download now) rectifies this problem.
