Testing for Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium of genotype frequencies is a crucial first step in the study of population genetics. In this paper, we develop an Expectation-Maximization algorithm to estimate the genotype frequencies for sibship data with genotype uncertainty. We also develop a likelihood ratio test of Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium for sibships with no parental genotypes available and with possible genotyping errors. Simulations show that our likelihood ratio test maintains valid control of the type I error rate and good statistical power. Finally, the likelihood ratio test is extended across strata when a sample is stratified by multiple ethnic populations with different genotype frequencies. READ MORE
