make.location.prior {bqtl} | R Documentation |
Uses the map distances as a means of assigning a prior for chromosomal location. Basically, this function attempts to assign equal weight according to the spacing or markers and 'virtual' markers.
make.location.prior( x, add.2.end=0, normalize=TRUE )
x |
x = exp(-mgd) ,where mgd is the map distance in Morgans |
add.2.end |
How many Morgans to extend the first and last interval on each chromosome |
normalize |
If TRUE, let the result sum to 1.0 |
A vector of length(x)
whose sum is one, if normalize==TRUE
