Parameters

This chapter introduces the parameters of each module in detail.

Genotype Dimensionality Reduction Module (genoidx)

-g: Genotype file used for genome-wide genotype dimensionality reduction analysis, support plink bed format and hapmap format´╝îthe plink bed format file only needs to provide the file prefix, the hapmap format needs to be used together with the parameter -convert

-w: Window size for genome-wide genotype dimensionality reduction analysis(bp), default 1000000
-s: Step size for genome-wide genotype dimensionality reduction analysis(bp), default 500000
-convert: Convert hapmap genotype format to plink bed format genotype
-clump: Clumping analysis for genotype file, used to keep a subset of SNPs that are nearly uncorrelated with each other, thereby reducing the number of total SNPs to speed up genome-wide genotype dimensionality reduction analysis
-p: Number of threads for genome cluster analysis,max threads is total number of genome chromosomes
-o: The prefix of the output file, default MODAS_genoidx_output

Phenotype preprocessing and transformation module (phenorm)

-phe: Phenotype file for phenotype preprocessing and transformation, the file format is csv format, the first column and the first row are the names of inbred lines and phenotypes respectively
-g: Genotype file in plink bed format for principal component analysis, used with the parameter -pca to correct differences in phenotype caused by population structure
-pca: Correct the differences in phenotype caused by population structure through PCA
-r: Phenotype missing ratio filter cutoff
-v: Phenotype value filter cutoff
-log2: log2 transformation of phenotype
-log10: log10 transformation of phenotype
-ln: ln transformation of phenotype

-o: The prefix of the output file, default MODAS_phenorm_output

Omics Phenotype Pre-screening Module (prescreen)

-g: Genotype file in plink bed format, used to calculate the kinship matrix for GWAS analysis
-genome_cluster: Pseudo-genotype file for phenotype pre-screening, generated by subcommand genoidx
