Simulate residual multivariate t-distributed data from a polygenic model

Share:

Description

Simulates residual multivariate t-distributed response data from a pedigree where the additive genetic, dominance genetic, and shared environmental effects are taken into account.

Usage

1
rmvt.pedigree(n = 1, pedigree, h2 = 0, c2 = 0, d2 = 0, df = 1)

Arguments

n

numeric. The number of simulations to generate

pedigree

a pedigree object

h2

numeric. The heritability

c2

numeric. The environmentability

d2

numeric. The dominance deviance effect

df

numeric. The degrees of freedom for the t distribution

Details

The three parameters should have a sum: h2+c2+d2 that is less than 1. The total variance is set to 1, and the mean is zero.

Value

Returns a matrix with the simulated values with n columns (one for each simulation) and each row matches the corresponding individual from the pedigree
