Re: Sign mistake in allele sharing probability formulae of Curran, et al


We would like to thank the authors for taking the time to check our work. The expressions require significant algebraic manipulation and time to simplify. It appears that in the final simplification of the formulae for publication we inadvertently changed a sign in the factorized expressions. We would like to note, however, that these simplified formulae were not used in our simulation work [ [1] ] and therefore the results are still valid for our publications which depend on them. It should also be noted that whilst we agree with the authors’ correction to the formula for brothers, we believe that the formula for cousins is still incorrect.
