ribd: Pedigree-based Relatedness Coefficients

Recursive algorithms for computing various relatedness coefficients, including pairwise kinship, kappa and identity coefficients. Both autosomal and X-linked coefficients are computed. Founders are allowed to be inbred, which enables construction of any given kappa coefficients, as described in Vigeland (2020) <doi:10.1007/s00285-020-01505-x>. In addition to the standard coefficients, 'ribd' also computes a range of lesser-known coefficients, including generalised kinship coefficients (Karigl (1981) <doi:10.1111/j.1469-1809.1981.tb00341.x>; Weeks and Lange (1988) <https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/3422543/>), two-locus coefficients (Thompson (1988) <doi:10.1093/imammb/5.4.261>) and multi-person coefficients. Many features of 'ribd' are available through the online app 'QuickPed' at <https://magnusdv.shinyapps.io/quickped>; see Vigeland (2022) <doi:10.1186/s12859-022-04759-y>.
