Table 2 The relative risk parameters estimable by EMIM

From: PREMIM and EMIM: tools for estimation of maternal, imprinting and interaction effects using multinomial modelling

Parameter Description
R 1 Child has one minor allele (child genotype effect)
R 2 Child has two minor alleles (child genotype effect)
S 1 Mother has one minor allele (maternal genotype effect)
S 2 Mother has two minor alleles (maternal genotype effect)
γ 11 Mother has one minor allele and child has one minor
  allele (mother-child interaction effect)
γ 12 Mother has one minor allele and child has two minor
  alleles (mother-child interaction effect)
γ 21 Mother has two minor alleles and child has one minor
  allele (mother-child interaction effect)
γ 22 Mother has two minor alleles and child has two minor
  alleles (mother-child interaction effect)
I m The child receives a minor allele from the mother
  (maternally operating imprinting effect)
I p The child receives a minor allele from the father
  (paternally operating imprinting effect)
