import2genind: Importing data from several softwares to a genind object

View source: R/import.R

Description

Their are several ways to import genotype data to a genind object: i) from a data.frame with a given format (see df2genind), ii) from a file with a recognized extension, or iii) from an alignement of sequences (see DNAbin2genind).

Usage

1

Arguments

file

a character string giving the path to the file to convert, with the appropriate extension.

quiet

logical stating whether a conversion message must be printed (TRUE,default) or not (FALSE).

...

other arguments passed to the appropriate 'read' function (currently passed to read.structure)

Details

The function import2genind detects the extension of the file given in argument and seeks for an appropriate import function to create a genind object.
Current recognized formats are :
- GENETIX files (.gtx)
- Genepop files (.gen)
- Fstat files (.dat)
- STRUCTURE files (.str or .stru)

Beware: same data in different formats are not expected to produce exactly the same genind objects.
For instance, conversions made by GENETIX to Fstat may change the the sorting of the genotypes; GENETIX stores individual names whereas Fstat does not; Genepop chooses a sample's name from the name of its last genotype; etc.

Value

an object of the class genind
