Change in error (y-axis) arising from pooled analyses of allele frequency differences between parents and offspring with increasing number of arrays. The x-axis shows the number of arrays used for each sample. At position 0.5 we show the data for a single (sense or antisense) strand. The final observation (position 5.5) is based upon 5 arrays for children and 6 arrays for parents (mean 5.5). Mean errors are represented by circles, and error thresholds below which 95% (squares) and 99% (triangles) of the data lie.
