The simple Markovian structures of dependence, defined previously for continuous traits, are extended here to familial disease and other binary traits through the use of the logistic function. The regressive models so formulated can incorporate explanatory variables and major gene effects for segregation and linkage analyses. Thus, the goals of epidemiology and genetics in the analysis of familial disease can be accomplished in the same computational scheme.
