This module reads in a pedigree file and counts the number of families of particular pedigree types. It is meant as a tool to provide a quick inspection of the family structure of a sample to be used for genetic studies.

1. Input pedigree(s)

Paste pedigree with at least 4 columns, {famno} {pid} {fid} {mid}. You can add a 5th column {phenotype} to filter individuals. All other columns are ignored. For example, to consider only individuals that have been genotyped, {phenotype} should have a 1 for genotyped individuals and a 0 otherwise.

2. Analysis options

Count based on supplied phenotype? Output format
