hybridCross {AlphaSimR}R Documentation

Hybrid crossing

Description

A convience function for hybrid plant breeding simulations. Allows for easy specification of a test cross scheme and/or creation of an object of HybridPop-class. Note that the HybridPop-class should only be used if the parents were created using the makeDH function or newPop using inbred founders. The id for new individuals is [mother_id]_[father_id]

Usage

hybridCross(
  females,
  males,
  crossPlan = "testcross",
  returnHybridPop = FALSE,
  simParam = NULL
)

Arguments

females

female population, an object of Pop-class

males

male population, an object of Pop-class

crossPlan

either "testcross" for all possible combinantions or a matrix with two columns for designed crosses

returnHybridPop

should results be returned as HybridPop-class. If false returns results as Pop-class. Population must be fully inbred if TRUE.

simParam

an object of SimParam

Examples

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

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

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

#Make crosses for full diallele
pop2 = hybridCross(pop, pop, simParam=SP)
