De Novo mutation Discovery - DND

This page gives access the DND software (written in JAVA)
developed to identify de novo mutations using high-throughput sequencing data
using the relatedness between individuals of a nuclear family. This approach
can also produce direct estimates of the spontaneous mutation rate, the error
rate of the sequencing technology and the population mutation rate.
