Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Creates a additive relationship matrix A from a pedigree data in a 3-column way format based on ploidy level (an even number) and, if ploidy equals 4, based on proportion of parental gametes that are IBD (Identical by Descent) due to double reduction. Returns a dominance relationship matrix if dominance true (ploidy 2 only). Autopolyploid matrices based on Kerr (2012). Construction is based on the Henderson's recursive method described in Mrode (2005).

1 2 |

`data` |
pedigree data name (3-column way format). Unknown value should be equal 0. |

`ploidy` |
an even number (default=2). |

`w` |
proportion of parental gametas IBD due to double reduction (default=0), only if ploidy=4. |

`verify` |
verifies pedigree file for conflictuos entries (default=TRUE). |

`dominance` |
if true, returns the dominance relationship matrix |

`slater` |
if true, returns the additive autotetraploid relationship matrix as Slater (2013) |

`...` |
arguments to be passed to datatreat() |

Matrix with the Relationship between the individuals.
