Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test

Description

Compare the medians of quantitative traits between entire collection (EC) and core set (CS) by Wilcoxon rank sum test or Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon test or Mann-Whitney U test (Wilcoxon 1945; Mann and Whitney 1947).

Usage

wilcox.evaluate.core(data, names, quantitative, selected)

Arguments

data

The data as a data frame object. The data frame should possess one row per individual and columns with the individual names and multiple trait/character data.

names

Name of column with the individual names as a character string

quantitative

Name of columns with the quantitative traits as a character vector.

selected

Character vector with the names of individuals selected in core collection and present in the names column.

Value

Trait

The quantitative trait.

EC_Med

The median value of the trait in EC.

CS_Med

The median value of the trait in CS.

Wilcox_pvalue

The p value of the Wilcoxon test for equality of medians of EC and CS.

Wilcox_significance

The significance of the Wilcoxon test for equality of medians of EC and CS.
