This allowed us to estimate the resolving power of the suite of loci we used by determining the ability to identify a parent without knowing the genotype of the other parent (total exclusionary power first parent), and to calculate delta, the difference in LOD scores (the sum of the log-likelihood scores at each locus) between the most likely simulated candidate parent and the second most likely.

CERVUS calculates a statistic delta ([DELTA]), which discriminates between non-excluded males by subtracting the LOD score of the second most-likely male from the LOD score of the most-likely male.

The linkage analyses are repeated for various values of [Theta] and results are reported as the logarithm of the odds of likelihood of linkage, or lod score, for each family and summed for the total families.
