calcGCA {AlphaSimR}R Documentation

Calculate GCA

Description

Calculate general combining ability of test crosses. Intended for output from hybridCross using the "testcross" option, but will work for any population.

Usage

calcGCA(pop, use = "pheno")

Arguments

pop

an object of Pop-class or HybridPop-class

use

tabulate either genetic values "gv", estimated breeding values "ebv", or phenotypes "pheno"

Examples

#Create founder haplotypes
founderPop = quickHaplo(nInd=10, nChr=1, segSites=10, inbred=TRUE)

#Set simulation parameters
SP = SimParam$new(founderPop)
SP$addTraitA(10)

#Create population
pop = newPop(founderPop, simParam=SP)

#Make crosses for full diallele
pop2 = hybridCross(pop, pop, simParam=SP)
GCA = calcGCA(pop2, use="gv")
