Gryphon: The Gryphon dataset

Description Usage Format


This dataset contains a simulated dataset and a simulated pedigree of the gryphons. The gryphon is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle's talons as its front feet. This dataset has been released with the publication of a paper introducing the animal model, a particular LMM used to infer the heritability of phenotypic traits (see sources). It thus offers the possibility to compare different packages and software for estimating the heritability.




A list containing:


The dataframe containing the mother id, the birth year, the sex, the birth weight, the tarsus length and the individual id of the gryphons


The dataframe containing the individual id, the mother id and the father id of each gryphon
