R has a nice set of utilities to work with strings. Function paste is surely one among these. It can be used to "glue" several strings with optional separator. The following example shows how paste can be used to create a new variable in a dataset:dat (dat$z Today I was in a situation where I only had column...

I was testing ASReml-R program (an R package that links propriety ASReml binaries that can be used only with valid licence) this week and had to do some manipulations with the numerator relationship matrix (A). ASReml-R provides a function (asreml.Ainverse) that can create inverse of A directly from the pedigree as this inverse is needed in pedigree based...

Jay Kerns wrote a book titled "Introduction to Probability and Statistics Using R" or IPSUR for short. He has put up a web site for the book and Rcmdr plugin. There are at least two very important points from my side (I did not read the book, yet): 1. ...

I have previously provided sort of an overview about plotting the pedigrees, then specifically using the Graphiviz, while I have lately used the TikZ LaTeX (see slides 11-15) system (see more example). The later gives great (beautiful) results, but at the cost of writing TikZ code - it is not that horible, just time consuming...
