Mendel's F2 trifactorial data for seed shape (A: round or wrinkled), cotyledon color (B: albumen yellow or green), and seed coat color (C: grey-brown or white)

Description

The mendel3 data frame has 27 rows and 4 columns. Data are from Mendel (1886), and are reproduced in Fisher (1936) and Weir (1996).

Usage

data(mendelABC)

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

seedshape

Factor with levels: AA, Aa and aa

cotylcolor

Factor with levels: BB, Bb and bb

coatcolor

Factor with levels: CC, Cc and cc

Observed

a numeric vector that holds the frequencies.

Details

The data are reviewed in detail in Fisher (1936). For a brief discussion, and references to work that revisits Fisher's conclusions, see Weir (1996).

Examples

## Lay table out as a 3D array, as in Fisher (1936)
abc <- aperm(array(mendelABC[,4], dim=c(3,3,3)), c(1,3,2))
dimnames(abc) <- list(B=c('BB','Bb','bb'), 
                      A=c('AA','Aa','aa'),
                      C=c('CC','Cc','cc'))
