gofhwex_1s {EQUIVNONINF}R Documentation

Critical constants of the exact UMPU test for absence of a substantial deficit of heterozygotes as compared with a HWE-compliant SNP genotype distribution [noninferiority version of the test implemented by means of gofhwex]

Description

The function computes the critical constants defining the UMPU test for one-sided equivalence of the population distribution of a SNP, to a distribution being in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (HWE).
A substantial deficit of heterozygotes is defined to occur when the true value of the parametric function ω = \frac{π_2/2}{√{π_1π_3}} [called relative excess heterozygosity (REH)] falls below unity by more than some given margin δ_0.
Like its two-sided counterpart [see the description of the R function gofhwex], the test is conditional on the total count S of alleles of the kind of interest.

Usage

gofhwex_1s(alpha,n,s,del0) 

Arguments

alpha

significance level

n

number of genotyped individuals

s

observed count of alleles of the kind of interest

del0

noninferiority margin for ω, which has to satisfy ω > 1-δ_0 under the alternative hypothesis to be established

Value

alpha

significance level

n

number of genotyped individuals

s

observed count of alleles of the kind of interest

del0

noninferiority margin for ω, which has to satisfy ω > 1-δ_0 under the alternative hypothesis to be established

C

left-hand limit of the critical interval for the observed number X_2 of heterozygotes

GAM

probability of rejecting the null hypothesis when it turns out that X_2=C
