The data consists of twenty pedigrees simulated using R package pedSimulate with different combinations of females selection (random, positively or negatively based on own phenotype or parent (genetic) average), additive genetic variance (10 vs. 20), and proportion of males selected (10% vs. 20%). The code used to simulate and analyze the data is available at "JupyterNotebook.html", and the corresponding Jupyter notebook (JupyterNotebook.ipynb) and R Markdown (JupyterNotebook.Rmd) files.


Steps to reproduce

The pedigrees were simulated using the following code in R. library(pedSimulate) l = 1 for(i in c("R","P","-P","PA","-PA")) { for(j in c(10,20)) { for(k in c(0.1,0.2)) { ped = simulatePed(F0size=100, Va0=j, Ve=30, littersize=2, ngen=9, overlap.s=1, overlap.d=1, f.rate=0.8, m.rate=k, fsel=i, msel="PA") write.csv(ped, file=paste0("PED",l,".csv"), row.names=F, quote=F) l = l+1 } } }
