Compute the depth of each subject in a pedigree

Description

Mark each person as to their depth in a pedigree; 0 for a founder, otherwise depth = 1 + max(father's depth, mother's depth)

Usage

1
kindepth(id, dad.id, mom.id, align = FALSE)

Arguments

id

Identification code for each individual

dad.id

Id code for the father

mom.id

Id code for the mother

align

If align=T, go one step further and try to make both parents of each child have the same depth. (This is not always possible). It helps the drawing program by lining up pedigrees that "join in the middle" via a marriage.

Details

In the case of an inbred pedigree a perfect alignment obeying extra=TRUE may not exist.

Value

an integer vector containing the depth for each subject
