This function will calculate a kinship matrix using TASSEL's Kinship plugin and respective parameters.

kinshipMatrix(
  tasObj,
  method = "Centered_IBS",
  maxAlleles = 6,
  algorithmVariation = "Observed_Allele_Freq"
)

Arguments

tasObj

An object of class TasselGenotypePenotype.

method

A Kinship method. Defaults to Centered_IBS. Other options include Normalized_IBS, Dominance_Centered_IBS, and Dominance_Normalized_IBS.

maxAlleles

Maximum number of alleles. Can be within the range of 2 to 6.

algorithmVariation

Algorithm variation. If Dominance_Centered_IBS is selected, users can switch between Observed_Allele_Freq and Proportion_Heterozygous.

Value

Returns a `TasselDistanceMatrix` object.
