  • The T column gives the relationship of the trio. The N column gives the number of such trios among the 2.9 × 1011 trios compared in the study. The α column gives the false-positive rates, and the “Err” column gives the total expected number of parental misassignments expected from each trio category when using a likelihood-based assignment method. The value in the Err column is the product of the values in the N and α columns. The αEXC and ErrEXC columns show the results when using an exclusion-based method.
