In the plink --rel-cutoff option, the default value for genomic relateness is 0.025. How does this genomic relateness value correspond to the degree of relationship or the PI-HAT?

Thanks for any help!

It is the relationship coefficient described in the GCTA paper:

Note that plink 2.0's --king-cutoff function is a more reliable way to prune close relationships, since it doesn't require good population allele frequencies.

Hi chrchang523,

Although it's late, I read the corresponding paper; but the question is still remaining. Could you please let me know which value should be selected for --rel-cutoff for removing related individuals with 2th degree of relationship?
