Dear useRs,

Please find the new package ibdreg version 0.1.0 on CRAN.

The package contains a method for analysis of genetic linkage 
with covariates by regression methods that use identity by descent 
(IBD) sharing probabilities for relative pairs.  The methods 
account for correlations of IBD statistics for 
relative pairs within the same pedigree.

The reference is:

Schaid DJ, Sinnwell JP, Thibodeau SN.  Testing Genetic
Linkage with Relative Pairs and Covariates by
Quasi-Likelihood Score Statistics. Submitted.
