Summary: FAMHAP is an established software for haplotype association analysis of nuclear families. We have released a major update that comprises various new features for case-control data. Furthermore, weprovide an additional program runFamhap that allows users to start the same method repeatedly for varying sets of genetic markers. In addition, a platform-independent graphical user interface (GUI) was developed to simplify the usage of both FAMHAP and runFamhap. The runFamhap program greatly facilitates the application of FAMHAP to genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and supports flexible genome-wide haplotype analysis. As an example, we describe application to HapMap data.
