Type of Coefficients to Calculate Use this feature to specify the type of coefficients that you wish to calculate. Select: When you want: Covariance To compute the covariance coefficients between pairs of individuals from the same pedigree. Kinship To calculate the coancestry coefficient. Note: The values of the covariance coefficients are twice (2x) that of the kinship (or coancestry) coefficients. To Specify the Coefficients: Select the desired coefficient by clicking within the appropriate radio button.
