View source: R/asymmetry.R

Description

asymmetry: calculates karyotype asymmetry A and A2.

asymmetryA2: calculates karyotype asymmetry A2

This functions read a data.frame with columns: shortArmSize and longArmSize

If several species present, use column OTU.

It returns a list with the A and A2 indices

A = Sum (longArm - shortArm / CL) / n

A: Watanabe et al. (1999) asymmetry of karyotype ranging from 0 (symmetric) to 1 (asymmetric)

A2 = sCL / xCL

(s = std dev, CL = chr. length, x = mean) (Romero-Zarco 1986)

related to:

CVCL = A2 * 100

(CV = coeff. var.) (Paszko 2006)

Usage

asymmetry(dfChrSize, asDf = FALSE)

asymmetryA2(dfChrSize)

Arguments

dfChrSize

name of data.frame

asDf

boolean, return d.f. instead of list

Value

list
