We have released simplePHENOTYPES v1.3.0. Our package simulates single and multiple (correlated) traits in a wide range of scenarios, including additive, dominance, and epistatic (AxA, AxAxA, ...) models.
Some of the new features include:
- The option to specify what markers will be used as QTNs
- Implemented the parameter "ld_max" and “ld_min” for simulating spurious pleiotropy
- Implemented the option for simulating more than two-way epistatic interactions
- Included the parameter 'mean', so traits can be simulated with the desired mean (intercept) value.
