XSnpMatrix-class: Class "XSnpMatrix"

Description Objects from the Class Slots Extends Methods Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

This class extends the SnpMatrix-class to deal with SNPs on the X and Y chromosomes and mitocondrial SNPs.

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("XSnpMatrix", x, diploid). Such objects have an additional slot to objects of class "SnpMatrix" consisting of a logical array of the same length as the number of rows. This array indicates whether genotypes in that row are diploid (TRUE) or haploid (FALSE as, for example, SNPs on the X chromosome for males).

Slots

.Data:

Object of class "matrix" and storage mode "raw"

diploid:

Object of class "logical" indicating sex of samples

Extends

Class "SnpMatrix", directly, with explicit coerce. Class "matrix", by class "SnpMatrix". Class "structure", by class "SnpMatrix". Class "array", by class "SnpMatrix". Class "vector", by class "SnpMatrix", with explicit coerce. Class "vector", by class "SnpMatrix", with explicit coerce.

Methods

[]

signature(x = "XSnpMatrix", i = "ANY", j = "ANY", drop = "missing"): subset extraction

[<-

signature(x = "XSnpMatrix", i = "ANY", j = "ANY", "XSnpMatrix"): subset assignment operation to replace part of an object

coerce

signature(from = "XSnpMatrix", to = "character"): map to codes 0, 1, 2, or NA

coerce

signature(from = "SnpMatrix", to = "XSnpMatrix"): maps a SnpMatrix to an XSnpMatrix. Ploidy is inferred from the genotype data since haploid genotypes should always be coded as homozygous. After inferring ploidy, heterozygous calls for haploid genotpes are set to NA

show

signature(object = "XSnpMatrix"): map to codes "A/A", "A/B", "B/B", "A", "B" or ""

summary

signature(object = "XSnpMatrix"): returns the distribution of ploidy, together with summaries of the data frames returned by row.summary and col.summary
