RFLPdist: Compute distances for RFLP data.

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/RFLPdist.R

Description

Within each group containing RFLP-samples exhibiting a equal number of bands, the distance between the molecular weights is computed.

Usage

1
RFLPdist(x, distfun = dist, nrBands, LOD = 0)

Arguments

x

data.frame with RFLP data; see RFLPdata.

distfun

function computing the distance with default dist; cf. dist.

nrBands

if not missing, then only samples with the specified number of bands are considered.

LOD

threshold for low-bp bands.

Details

For each number of bands the given distance between the molecular weights is computed. The result is a named list of distances where the names correspond to the number of bands which occur in each group.

If nrBands is specified only samples with this number of bands are considered.

If LOD > 0 is specified, all values below LOD are removed before the distances are calculated.

Value

A named list with the distances; see dist.

In case nrBands is not missing, an object of S3 class dist.
