  1. Note: aFor strict confidence level. bFor relaxed confidence level. If the candidate parent is not the most likely, this column will be blank. Pair LOD score: log-likelihood ratio for a parent-offspring relationship between the first candidate parent and the offspring. The superscripts on the adults represent the sex of individuals, F, female; M, male.
