SEGREGATION ANALYSIS

Enumeration of progeny according to distinct and mutually exclusive phenotypes; used as a test of a putative pattern of inheritance (mendelian, dominant autosomal, epistatic, age dependent).

SEGREGATION ANALYSIS: "Studies of familial aggregation, different incidence rates in different racial and ethnic groups, and segregation analysis are all consistent in pointing to a genetic contribution to renal disease."
