Checks that Id's form an arithmetic sequence, and that every SId and DId appears as an Id.This ensures that relationship matrix construction can proceed without error. Also checks each SId is a male, and each DId is a female
A dataframe containing the columns Id, SId, and DId as required to include pedigree information.
pedcheck() would normally be used before function
mdf(), to indicate whether
mdf() is needed. If there are base animals missing from the dataframe, it will report errors. It can be used after
mdf() just to check for errors in the Sex of individuals. Errors in the Sex of individuals can affect calculation of sexlinked relationship matrices.
Both the inline code in function
dmm() and the routines in package
nadiv require Id's in a numerical sequence and base animals present, for correct relationship matrix calculations.
Returns zero if the dataframe passes check tests. Returns number of message(s) if the dataframe fails check tests, and prints the messages.
pedcheck() is an internal function called by function
is made available because it may be useful for preliminary checking.
