Family data teamed with the transmission/disequilibrium test (TDT), which simultaneously evaluates linkage and association, is a powerful means of detecting disease-liability alleles. To increase the information provided by the test, various researchers have proposed TDT-based methods for haplotype transmission. Haplotypes indeed produce more-definitive transmissions than do the alleles comprising them, and this tends to increase power. However, the larger number of haplotypes, relative to alleles at individual loci, tends to decrease power, because of the additional degrees of freedom required for the test. An optimal strategy would focus the test on particular...
