MNSs: The MNSs Blood Group System

View source: R/family.genetic.R

Description

Estimates the three independent parameters of the the MNSs blood group system.

Usage

1
MNSs(link = "logitlink", imS = NULL, ims = NULL, inS = NULL)

Arguments

link

Link function applied to the three parameters. See Links for more choices.

imS, ims, inS

Optional initial value for mS, ms and nS respectively. A NULL means they are computed internally.

Details

There are three independent parameters: m_S, m_s, n_S, say, so that n_s = 1 - m_S - m_s - n_S. We let the eta vector (transposed) be (g(m_S), g(m_s), g(n_S)) where g is the link function.

Value

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

Note

The input can be a 6-column matrix of counts, where the columns are MS, Ms, MNS, MNs, NS, Ns (in order). Alternatively, the input can be a 6-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.
