I have snp data obtained from nuclear families and I want to detect "extended regions of autozygosity" using a tool. My current approach is to visualize SNPs in Genome Studio but I want to use a tool and automate this as a first pass scan before I do a manual inspection. Can tools like PLINK or Merlin be used successfully for this purpose, or do you have other suggestions?

Thanks

I know that plink can be used to define IBD. Actually, plink1 and plink2 have different calculations - what you want in plink2 is called "KING"

I've typically used more samples, but I think it should be able to confirm the genome-wide relatedness for just a trio.

For example, you can see a measure of those king distance measures in the image towards the bottom of this post.
