runs haplo.score.slide with all pairs of markers in a region

scan.haplo.2D {GenABEL}R Documentation

runs haplo.score.slide with all pairs of markers in a region

Description

Runs haplo.score.slide from the package haplo.stats on all pairs of markers in a region and presents output as scan.gwaa.2D-class object

Usage

scan.haplo.2D(formula, data, snpsubset, idsubset, bcast = 10, simulate=FALSE, trait.type, ...)

Arguments

formula Formula to be used in analysis. It should be a character string following standard notation. On the left-had side, there should be outcome. On the right-hand side, covariates are liste, with "+" separating the covariates (additive action). The left- and right-hand sides are separated by "~". You should put CRSNP argument in the formula. For example "qt3~CRSNP" would analyse asociation between SNPs and trait "qt3", without any adjustment. To adjust for age and sex, use "qt3~age+sex+CRSNP". Currently, only additive effects ("+") are allowed.
data object of calss gwaa.data-class
snpsubset Index, character or logical vector with subset of SNPs to run analysis on. If missing, all SNPs from data are used for analysis.
idsubset Index, character or logical vector with subset of IDs to run analysis on. If missing, all people from data/cc are used for analysis.
bcast show progress every bcast percents of progress
simulate if simulated P-values should be generated
trait.type Character string defining type of trait, with values of "gaussian", "binomial", "poisson", "ordinal" (see help for haplo.score.slide for details). If not specified, the routine picks up "gaussian" or "binomial" (two levels of trait).
... other arguments to be passed to haplo.score.slide

Details

List element P2df is set equal to P1df, as only allelic results are returned. This has nothing to do with actual degrees of freedom of the test.

Value

Object of class scan.gwaa.2D-class
