Class "HWEdata". Data specification for the Hardy-Weinberg Testing Problem Using the Intrinsic Prior Approach.

Description

This class encapsulates the data specification for a Bayesian objective analysis via intrinsic priors of the Hardy-Weinberg Testing Problem as described in Consonni et al. (2011).

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("HWEdata", data), where data are the data in vector form.

Slots

data.mat:

Object of class "matrix"; data in matrix form.

size:

Object of class "numeric"; number of alleles included in the data.

data.vec:

Object of class "numeric"; data in vector form.

Methods

plot

signature(x = "HWEdata", y = "missing"): Provides a pictorial representation for a sample of genotype counts.

summary

signature(object = "HWEdata"): Extracts the contents of an HWEdata object.
