Loci.test: Analysis on differences in mean relatedness based on number...

View source: R/Loci.test.R

Description

Random samples are drawn from populations specified in tab.pop. Pairwise relatedness is calculated by either "Bxy", "Sxy", "Mxy", "Li", "lxy", "rxy", "loiselle", "wang.fin", "wang", "ritland", "morans.fin" or "morans" allele.sharing. Pairwise relatedness is calculated for different number of loci beginning with only one up to the maximum number of loci in the dataset. Reference populations can be set for the calculations if ref.pop="NA". tab.pop is used as an estimate of overall allele frequencies. Distance between pairwise relatedness estimates are calculated using dist() with euclidean calculation.
Graphically, a .pdf file is exported and the object Random.loci.differences contains each pairwise difference for usage in further statistics.

     Loci.test(tab.pop, ref.pop = "NA", object = FALSE,
               value = NA, bt = 1000, 
               file.output = FALSE)
     

Arguments

tab.pop

Specific dataframe of type inputformat. All populations which should be analyzed.

ref.pop

Specific dataframe of type inputformat. Population information which should be used as a reference for either threshold or allele frequency calculation.

object

logical - is tab.pop object.

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".

bt

Number of bootstrap replicates.

file.output

logical - should a .pdf file be sent as standard output in your working directory.

Value

Loci.test.Sys.Date().pdf

Plot of linear regression of used loci and calculated mean estimate of relatedness from each bootstrapped replicate defined by bt.

Random.loci.differences

List of differences in relatedness derived from bootstrap replicates. The x'th list element contains a matrix of means from replicates each over x random loci.
