  map,
  chr = NULL,
  lodcolumn = 1,
  threshold = 0,
  peakdrop = Inf,
  prob = 0.95,
  expand2markers = TRUE
)

Arguments

scan1_output

An object of class "scan1" as returned by scan1().

map

A list of vectors of marker positions, as produced by insert_pseudomarkers().

chr

Chromosome ID to consider (must be a single value).

lodcolumn

LOD score column to consider (must be a single value).

threshold

Minimum LOD score for a peak.

peakdrop

Amount that the LOD score must drop between peaks, if multiple peaks are to be defined on a chromosome.

prob

Nominal coverage for the interval.

expand2markers

If TRUE, QTL intervals are expanded so that their endpoints are at genetic markers.

Details

We identify a set of peaks defined as local maxima that exceed the specified threshold, with the requirement that the LOD score must have dropped by at least peakdrop below the lowest of any two adjacent peaks.

At a given peak, if there are ties, with multiple positions jointly achieving the maximum LOD score, we take the average of these positions as the location of the peak.

The default is to use threshold=0, peakdrop=Inf, and prob=0.95. We then return results a single peak, no matter the maximum LOD score, and give a 95% Bayes credible interval.

Value

A matrix with three columns:

Each row corresponds to a different peak.
