c.cross {qtl}R Documentation

Combine data for QTL experiments

Description

Concatenate the data for multiple QTL experiments.

Usage

c.cross(...)

Arguments

... A set of objects of class cross. See read.cross for details. These must all either be of the same cross type or be a combination of backcrosses and intercrosses. All crosses must have exactly the same genetic maps, including the same number of chromosomes, chromosome names, number of markers per chromosome, marker names, and marker orders.

Value

The concatenated input, as a cross object. Additional columns are added to the phenotype data indicating which cross an individual comes from; another column indicates cross type (0=BC, 1=intercross), if there are crosses of different types. The crosses are not required to have exactly the same set of phenotypes; phenotypes with the same names are assumed to be the same.
