kingroup is an open source java program implementing a maximum likelihood approach to pedigree relationships reconstruction and kin group assignment. kingroup implements a new method (currently being performance tested) for reconstructing groups of kin that share a common relationship by estimating an overall likelihood for alternative partitions. A number of features found in kinship (Goodnight & Queller 1999) have also been implemented to make them available outside the Classic Macintosh OS platform for the first time.
