Description

Update the allocation of samples on the arrays. This is a subfunction needed for updateDesign, but is not directly used.

Usage

1
  arrayUpdate(array.allocation, condition.allocation, nRILs, nSlides)

Arguments

array.allocation

matrix with nArray rows and nRIL columns. Elements of 1/0 indicate this RIL (or strain) is/not selected for this array.

condition.allocation

matrix with nCondition rows and nRIL columns. Elements of 1/0 indicate this RIL (or strain) is/not selected for this condition.

nRILs

number of RILs or strains available for the experiment.

nSlides

total number of slides available for experiment.

Details

This function is used only for designing a dual-channel experiment where samples need to be paired.

Value

A list with the following two elements:
new.array.allocation: an updated array allocation table
