## S3 method for class 'qtlpoly.null'
print(x, pheno.col = NULL, ...)

Arguments

data

an object of class qtlpoly.data.

offset.data

a data frame with the same dimensions of data$pheno containing offset variables; if NULL (default), no offset variables are considered.

pheno.col

a numeric vector with the phenotype columns to be analyzed; if NULL, all phenotypes from 'data' will be included.

n.clusters

number of parallel processes to spawn.

plot

a suffix for the file's name containing simple plots of every QTL search round, e.g. "null" (default); if NULL, no file is produced.

verbose

if TRUE (default), current progress is shown; if FALSE, no output is produced.

x

an object of class qtlpoly.null to be printed.

...

currently ignored

Value

An object of class qtlpoly.null which contains a list of results for each trait with the following components:

pheno.col

a phenotype column number.

stat

a vector containing values from score statistics.

pval

a vector containing p-values from score statistics.

qtls

a data frame with information from the mapped QTL (NULL at this point).
