editGenomeTopQtl {AlphaSimR}R Documentation

Edit genome - the top QTL

Description

Edits the top QTL (with the largest additive effect) to a homozygous state for the allele increasing. Only nonfixed QTL are edited The gv slot is recalculated to reflect the any changes due to editing, but other slots remain the same.

Usage

editGenomeTopQtl(pop, ind, nQtl, trait = 1, increase = TRUE, simParam = NULL)

Arguments

pop

an object of Pop-class

ind

a vector of individuals to edit

nQtl

number of QTL to edit

trait

which trait effects should guide selection of the top QTL

increase

should the trait value be increased or decreased

simParam

an object of SimParam

Value

Returns an object of Pop-class

Examples

#Create founder haplotypes
founderPop = quickHaplo(nInd=2, nChr=1, segSites=10)

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

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

#Change up to 10 loci for individual 1 
pop2 = editGenomeTopQtl(pop, ind=1, nQtl=10, simParam=SP)
