Eight week vernalization data for Brassica napus

Description

Contains genotypes and phenotypes for 8-week vernalization study used in Satagopan et al. (1996).

Usage

data(vern)
data(verngeo.bim)
data(vernpois.bim)

Format

See read.cross for format of vern. verngeo.bim and vernpois.bim created by setting prior.nqtl to "geometric" and "poisson", respectively.

    ## or use run.bmapqtl to create bim objects:
    ## Not run: 
    bmapqtl.options(prior.nqtl="geometric")
    verngeo.bim = run.bmapqtl(vern)
    bmapqtl.options(prior.nqtl="poisson")
    vernpois.bim = run.bmapqtl(vern)
