r^2_V measure

Share:

Description

This function estimates the novel measure of linkage disequilibrium which is corrected by the relatedness of genotyped individuals.

Usage

1
Measure.R2V(biloci, V, na.presence=TRUE, V_inv=NULL)

Arguments

biloci

Numeric matrix (N x 2), where N is the number of genotypes (or haplotypes).

Matrix values are the allelic doses:

- (0,1,2) for genotypes.

- (0,1) for haplotypes.

Row names correspond to the ID of individuals.

Column names correspond to the ID of markers.

V

Numeric matrix (N x N), where N is the number of genotypes (or haplotypes).

Matrix values are coefficients of genetic covariance for each pair of individuals.

Rows and columns names must correspond to the ID of individuals and must be ranged in the same order as in the biloci matrix.

No missing value.

na.presence

Boolean indicating the presence of missing values in data.

If na.presence=FALSE (no missing data), computation of r^2_V and r^2_{VS} is largely optimized.

By default, na.presence=TRUE.

V_inv

Should stay NULL.

Value

The returned value is the estimated value of the measure of linkage disequilibrium corrected by the relatedness of genotyped individuals or NA if less than 5 individuals have non-missing data at both loci.
