View source: R/Emp.calc.R

Description

Allele sharing and relatedness estimators can be calculated for one population as a mean over several loci.

Usage

1
2
     Emp.calc(tab.pop.pop, value="NA", ref.pop="NA")
     

Arguments

tab.pop.pop

Object with information for one population and loci. Object needs to be formatted according to inputformat.

value

String defining method to calculate allele sharing or similarity estimates. Can be set as "Bxy", "Sxy", "Mxy", "Li", "lxy", "rxy", "loiselle", "wang.fin", "wang", "ritland", "morans.fin" or "morans" allele.sharing.

ref.pop

Reference population needs to be specified for several calculations.

Details

The function calculates pairwise relatedness for all individuals in the dataframe. The output is a matrix of similarities by relatedness values in the population.

Value

empirical.list

Object containing a dataframe of mean individual pairwise relatedness. If value="NA" all available estimators are calculated in one call of function Emp.calc.
