SOLAR stands for Sequential Oligogenic Linkage Analysis Routines. SOLAR addresses genetic variance components analysis, including linkage analysis, quantitative genetic analysis, and covariate screening. Two basic types of linkage analysis are available, Twopoint and Multipoint. Maximum Likelihood estimation, Monte Carlo Simulations and Bayesian Model Averaging are some of the options available to address model formation and screening. SOLAR is available on Tufts Bioinformatic Server where larger computational intensive jobs may be run.
