A few months ago I covered an algorithm called EMMA (Efficient Mixed-Model Association) implemented in R for simultaneously correct for both population stratification and relatedness in an association study. This method/software is very useful because most methods that account for relatedness in an association study assume a genetically (ethnically) homogeneous population, while methods that
