Importing and simulating data

Part of the Statistics for Biology and Health book series (SBH)

One of the more frustrating tasks associated with the use of any data analysis software concerns the importation of data. Data can be imported into R/qtl in a variety of formats, but users often have trouble with this step. In this chapter, we describe how to import QTL mapping data into R for use with R/qtl. We further discuss the simulation of QTL mapping data. In an optional section, we describe the internal format that R/qtl uses for QTL mapping data.
