The documentation of the algorithm presented at the Appendix of the original article “Robustness of Bayesian Multilocus Association Models to Cryptic Relatedness” by Hanni P Kärkkäinen and Mikko J Sillanpää, published on Volume 76 Issue 6 (November 2012) of the Annals of Human Genetics at pages 510–523, contains the following clerical errors.
The GEM-algorithm for the EBL, step 5 (bottom right, p. 13):
The expected value of should be
The GEM-algorithm for the EBL, step 6 (top left, p. 14):
Update the hyperparameter values of δ and to their conditional expectations, the conditional expectations should be
In the GEM-algorithm for the Indicator model, step 4 (top right, p. 14) the error variance is called instead of , and the text should be: Update the error variance into its conditional expectation.
The GEM-algorithm for the Indicator model, step 6 (middle right, p. 14) the formula for computing should be
As the errors occurred only in the written text, not in programming, all of the results presented in the paper are based on a correct algorithm. The authors deeply regret that this has happened and are sincerely grateful to Prof. Hiroyoshi Iwata for drawing the errors to their attention.
