HaploRec: Efficient and
accurate largescale reconstruction of haplotypes
HaploRec [1,2] is a statistical haplotype reconstruction algorithm
targeted for largescale disease association studies. It is especially
suitable for data sets with a large number of subjects and
a large number of possibly sparsely located markers.
HaploRec is implemented in the Java programming language, and thus works on any platform
for which a java virtual machine is available (practically all common operating systems). It requires Java virtual machine 1.5 or higher.

Version history

2.3 (February 2008) Current version. Introduces an improved Markov model,
where the conditional probabilities are smoothed over several different
context lengths. This is now the default model. More efficient splitting
and combining of files in the windowing version intended for chromosomewide data sets. Minor improvements in memory management.

2.2 (May 2007) Conceptually identical to version 2.1.
Extension program which enables handling of chromosomewide data sets is now
implemented in java instead of perl, improving platform independence.

2.1 (September 2006) The version described in [1]. Introduces an improved
segmentation model that gives more accurate results
than the segmentation model used in version 2.0.

2.0 (June 2005) This version introduced an EMbased algorithm and
a segmentationbased haplotype probability model, and
featured several computational improvements, allowing
the use of larger data sets.

1.0 (January 2004) Original implementation of the algorithm introduced in [2].
Used a variableorder markov model. Used a simple
"optimistic matching" strategy for fragment frequency estimation
(instead of the EM algorithm used by the later versions).
