bdsmatrix.ibd {bdsmatrix}R Documentation

Create a bdsmatrix from a list


Routines that create identity-by-descent (ibd) coefficients often output their results as a list of values (i, j, x[i,j]), with unlisted values of the x matrix assumed to be zero. This routine recasts such a list into bdsmatrix form.


bdsmatrix.ibd(id1, id2, x, idmap, diagonal)



row identifier for the value, in the final matrix. Optionally, id1 can be a 3 column matrix or data.frame, in which case it is assumed to contain the first 3 arguments, in order.


column identifier for the value, in the final matrix.


the value to place in the matrix


a two column matrix or data frame. Sometimes routines create output with integer values for id1 and id2, and then this argument is the mapping from this internal label to the “real” name)


If diagonal elements are not preserved in the list, this value will be used for the diagonal of the result. If the argument appears, then the output matrix will contain an entry for each value in idlist. Otherwise only those with an explicit entry appear.


The routine first checks for non-symmetric or otherwise inconsistent input. It then groups observations together into ‘families’ of related subjects, which determines the structure of the final matrix. As with the makekinship function, singletons with no relationships are first in the output matrix, and then families appear one by one.
