InterferenceAnalyzer WEB Page

The following software may be used to compute the interference parameter for tetrad data under the counting model and the interference parameter and the proportion of non-interfering crossovers under an extension of the counting model. The ".jar" files are executable - that is, you just double click on them after you download them to your computer in order to run the program and get the graphical user interface. The only problem is that they look like regular files instead of like programs. The ".exe" is the same code; it just has a nicer icon.

Known Issues If you want to use the Java 1.5 jar file on a Windows computer and if, when you click on the link above, you get a .zip file, then (1) Click on the link with the right mouse button, (2) select "Save target as", (3) change the extension to ".jar". This method has worked for me.
