1 W = X+Y where X is the number of transmissions of the haplotype from heterozygote parents to affected siblings (TDT) and Y is the number of the occurrences of the haplotype in affected sibs in remaining informative families (S-TDT).

The 6 alleles in the Sequence column from left to right are from rs800292 to rs2284664 according to their positions in the CFH gene.
