Thomas Mailund blogs about his progress on HapCluster++, a software package he's working on for linkage disequilibrium mapping. Originally implemented in R, he re-wrote the software in C++ and now hopes to make a version that scales to genome-wide study. "It is based on clustering sequences, based on their local similarity around a possible disease locus, and then assign a likelihood to the clustering based on the way cases and controls are distributed in the clusters," he writes.
