AA.Aa.aa: The AA-Aa-aa Blood Group System

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

Description

Estimates the parameter of the AA-Aa-aa blood group system, with or without Hardy Weinberg equilibrium.

Usage

1
2
AA.Aa.aa(linkp = "logit", linkf = "logit", inbreeding = FALSE,
         ipA = NULL, ifp = NULL, zero = NULL)

Arguments

linkp, linkf

Link functions applied to pA and f. See Links for more choices.

ipA, ifp

Optional initial values for pA and f.

inbreeding

Logical. Is there inbreeding?

zero

See CommonVGAMffArguments for information.

Details

This one or two parameter model involves a probability called pA. The probability of getting a count in the first column of the input (an AA) is pA*pA. When inbreeding = TRUE, an additional parameter f is used. If inbreeding = FALSE then f = 0 and Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium (HWE) is assumed. The EIM is used if inbreeding = FALSE.

Value

An object of class "vglmff" (see vglmff-class). The object is used by modelling functions such as vglm and vgam.

Warning

Setting inbreeding = FALSE makes estimation difficult with non-intercept-only models. Currently, this code seems to work with intercept-only models.

Note

The input can be a 3-column matrix of counts, where the columns are AA, Ab and aa (in order). Alternatively, the input can be a 3-column matrix of proportions (so each row adds to 1) and the weights argument is used to specify the total number of counts for each row.
