Answer: Difference between AssocTestMM (GENESIS) and EMMAX? Why results are different?
5 months ago by
The results should be very similar. The first question that comes to mind
is: are you using the same covariance (relationship) matrix for each
software? how did you calculate it?
When you say the results are slightly different, could you please
elaborate? What is different? and how different is it? I wouldn't expect
the numerical solutions to be *exactly *the same seeing as the solution is
found through an iterative process, but I would expect them to be quite
