Conversion to class "genlight"

Share:

Description

The class genlight is a formal (S4) class for storing a genotypes of binary SNPs in a compact way, using a bit-level coding scheme. New instances of this class are best created using new; see the manpage of genlight for more information on this point.

As a shortcut, conversion methods can be used to convert various objects into a genlight object. Conversions can be achieved using S3-style (as.genlight(x)) or S4-style (as(x,"genlight") procedures. All of them call upon the constructor (new) of genlight objects.

Conversion is currently available from the following objects: - matrix of type integer/numeric - data.frame with integer/numeric data - list of vectors of integer/numeric type
