Hello, I have simulated genetic data from Hudson's ms (and COSI) software in this form:

001010
110101
010100
001010
010100


where 0 and 1 represent the ancestral and derived allele, respectively. Each line represents a chromosome from an individual, whereas each column represents a SNP. Is there any way of calculating LD-related measures from this data, such as D' or r2?. I know how to do it from real genetic data (A,C,G,T) but I have not found how to do it from binary (0,1) data. Any suggestion is very welcome !

For the number of recombination events I use RecMin. The input file format is quite similar to the data you have. http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/~myers/RecMin.html

Thanks very much @microfuge .I will try it !. Can it calculate r2 or D'?
