Line x Tester Analysis

Description

It makes the Line x Tester Genetic Analysis. It also estimates the general and specific combinatory ability effects and the line and tester genetic contribution.

Usage

lineXtester(replications, lines, testers, y)

Arguments

replications

Replications

lines

Lines

testers

Testers

y

Variable, response

Details

ANOVA with parents and crosses
ANOVA for line X tester analysis
ANOVA for line X tester analysis including parents
GCA Effects: Lines Effects, Testers Effects and SCA Effects.
Standard Errors for Combining Ability Effects.
Genetic Components.
...
Proportional contribution of lines, testers and their interactions to total variance

Value

return anova(formula = Y ~ Replications + Treatments).
where the Treatments contains parents, crosses and crosses vs Parents.
The crosses contains Lines, Testers and its interaction .
