#' @details 
#' 
#' A correlation between heterozygosity (h) and fitness (W) requires a simultaneous effect of 
#' inbreeding level (f) on both of them.
#' A heterozygosity-fitness correlation (HFC) thus is the product of two correlations, 
#' which can be summarized in the following equation:
#' 
#' \deqn{r(W, h) = r(W, f)r(h, f)}
#' 
#' Estimating these parameters and their sensitivity towards the number and type of genetic markers used is the central framework
#' of the inbreedR package. At the heart of measuring inbreeding based on genetic markers is the g2 statistic, which estimates 
#' the correlation of heterozygosity across markers, called identity disequilibrium (ID). ID is a proxy for inbreeding.
#' 
#' The package has three main goals:
#' 
#' \itemize{
#' \item Assessing identity disequilibria and the potential to detect heterozygosity-fitness correlations 
#' \item Providing insights on the sensitivity of these measures based on the number/type of molecular markers used
#' \item Implementing computationally efficient functions in a flexible environment for analysing 
#' inbreeding and HFC`s with both small and large datasets.
