Read Data from a TETRASAT Input File

Share:

Description

Given a file containing genotypes in the TETRASAT format, read.Tetrasat produces a genambig object containing genotypes and population identities from the file.

Usage

1
read.Tetrasat(infile)

Arguments

infile

A character string of the file path to be read.

Details

read.Tetrasat reads text files that are in the exact format specified by the software TETRASAT and TETRA (see references for more information). This is similar to the file format for GenePop but allows for up to four alleles per locus. All alleles must be coded by two digits. Another difference between the TETRASAT and GenePop formats is that in TETRASAT the sample name and genotypes are not separated by a comma, because the columns of data have fixed widths.

Since TETRASAT files also contain information about which samples belong to which populations, this information is put into the PopInfo slot of the genambig object. Population names are not taken from the file. The Ploidies slot is filled with the number 4 (using the "ploidyone" class), because all individuals should be tetraploid. The first line of the file is put into the Description slot.

Locus names should not contain the letters "pop", uppercase or lowercase, adjacent to each other.

Value

A genambig object containing data from the file.
