Merges two data-sets in a consensus data-set, sharing order but with separate parameter estimations (data-set specific recombination/breakage/retention ratio).


The dsmergor command is invoked either as:


The dsmergor command merges two data-sets of compatible types in a single data-set for which an overall maximum likelihood marker ordering is sought. If more then 2 data-sets need to be merged, this command must be called repeatedly. The merged data-set built uses all the information available in the two data-sets but independent maximum likelihood multipoint parameter estimations are performed on each data-set. This can be used to eg. determine sex-specific racombination ratio.

There is no restriction on the type of data-sets that can be merged using this operator (including merging of radiated hybrid and genetic recombination data).



a list summarizing some basic information on the merged data-set: The number of markers is usually strictly less than the number of markers in each of the merged data-set (identical markers are detected by their identical name).
