We describe a broad class of family‐based association tests that are adjusted for admixture; use either dichotomous or measured phenotypes; accommodate phenotype‐unknown subjects; use nuclear families, sibships or a combination of the two, permit multiple nuclear families from a single pedigree; incorporate di‐ or multi‐allelic marker data; allow additive, dominant or recessive models; and permit adjustment for covariates and gene‐by‐environment interactions. The test statistic is the covariance between a user‐specified function of the genotype and a user‐specified function of the trait. The distribution of the statistic is computed using the appropriate conditional distribution of offspring genotypes that adjusts for admixture. Genet.
