HWEintrinsic-package: Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium Testing using an Objective...

Description Details Author(s) References See Also


This package implements the intrinsic prior methodology to the problem of testing whether a population is in the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. The class of intrinsic priors under the full model is indexed by a tuning quantity, the training sample size. The analysis is robust if the decision of rejecting the null hypothesis does not change as the intrinsic prior varies over this class.
