Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS 2016)
A segment of DNA is called identical by descent (IBD) in two or more individuals if it is identical because it was inherited from a common ancestor. IBD segments can be used to uncover hidden familial relationships, detect the population of origin of an individual or find interbreedings between humans and ancient hominins like the Neandertal. IBD segments can also be used to find the cause of diseases via a technique called IBD mapping.
