In this paper, we extend multi-locus iterative peeling to provide a computationally efficient method for calling, phasing, and imputing sequence data of any coverage in small or large pedigrees. Our method, called hybrid peeling, uses multi-locus iterative peeling to estimate shared chromosome segments between parents and their offspring at a subset of loci, and then uses single-locus iterative peeling to aggregate genomic information across multiple generations at the remaining loci.
