Scientific Literature, Program Guides
Most of the manuals below contain
links to programs for downloading. For some of the programs listed
I have newer versions that are not yet on this webpage; write to
me if you are interested. Also, I can supply 64 bit versions of
the Pascal programs. Earlier versions of our programs, and other
freely available software, is available from the ftp
site at the European Bioinformatics
Institute (EMBL-EBI), Hinxton, UK.
corrections for the 1991 and 1999
editions of Analysis of Human Genetic Linkage (see also
notes to this book), and for
Handbook of Human Genetic Linkage;
exercise files for the latter book.
Our Handbook is now available as a
pdf file after copyright has been transferred from the
original publisher to the authors. The Chinese version
of the Handbook was translated by Dr. Yi Li, Associate Professor,
Taiyuan, Shanxi, PRC (if you are unable to open this file, please
download a current version of the Adobe Reader).
- A very useful book, Combinatorial Algorithms For Computers and Calculators (Nijenhuis & Wilf 1978), is now freely available for download.
Genetic Analysis Software. This list was created by Dr.
Wentian Li when he was at Columbia University (1995-96). It was
then moved to Rockefeller University (1996-2002) and is now
maintained as a github repository by Dr. Gao Wang.

Sex-specific maps of the
human chromosomes. These maps were calculated based on highly
polymorphic markers in 15 CEPH families comprising 239
individuals. Although our publications (Fann
& Ott, Genomics 29, 571-575, 1995; Li
et al, Hum Hered 48, 266-270) appeared some 20 years
ago, results still seem valuable and rare to find elsewhere. For
example, the graph below shows a fitted curve for 19 intervals on
chromosome 19, with x-axis = male map position at interval
midpoint, and y = scaled difference between female and male map
lengths in the given interval.

is available for analysis of Hamming distance data.
