Rcross performs a random cross or reformats a data set.
Cross types include F1 backcrosses to the P1 or P2,
F2 crosses produced by selfing or random mating, recombinant inbred lines as well
as a few others. It simulates marker and trait data. The markers simulated come
from a molecular map that could be a random one produced by
Rmap, or a real one in the same format as the output of
Rmap. The QTL model could be a random set produced by
Rqtl or an estimated set in the same format as the output of Rqtl.
Rcross can also translate files from three different formats. If the
user chooses to translate a file, then the simulation options are ignored.
