Scripts for testing the error rate of polyRAD



This set of scripts accompanies the manuscript describing the R package polyRAD, which uses DNA sequence read depth to estimate allele dosage in diploids and polyploids. Using several high-confidence SNP datasets from various species, allelic read depth from a typical RAD-seq dataset was simulated, then genotypes were estimated with polyRAD and other software and compared to the true genotypes, yielding error estimates.
