Next: OPTIONS Up: RCROSS Previous: SYNOPSIS   Contents   Index


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.
