  1. The inclusion of X-linked markers in the direct assignment led to the exclusion of a large number of related pairs, whereas several are correctly assigned using the autosomal SNPs. This is because almost all these pairs involve a male-male comparison, highlighting how these SNPs cannot be used to perform a proper hemizygous evaluation, and is consistent with the higher Pe values found for the SNPs on the sex chromosomes
