Hi all,

Does anyone know whether there is any R package or function to calculate IBD (identity by descent) sharing? I have been trying to search for a solution in Biostar, google, etc, but haven't really found anything.

I know that other software such as SOLAR, MERLIN, GENIBD, SIMWALK etc can calculate IBD. I am doing some simulation in R and since my simulated genotype is already in R, I would like to find a way to calculate IBD sharing within R itself.

Can anyone help point me to the right direction?

Thank you very much.
