Creates an individual using the PKSim Database.

## Usage

createIndividualCharacteristics(
species,
population = NULL,
gender = NULL,
weight = NULL,
weightUnit = "kg",
height = NULL,
heightUnit = "cm",
age = NULL,
ageUnit = "year(s)",
gestationalAge = 40,
gestationalAgeUnit = "week(s)",
moleculeOntogenies = NULL,
seed = NULL
)

## Arguments

species

Species of the individual as defined in PK-Sim (see Species enum)

population

Population to use to create the individual. This is required only when the species is Human. (See HumanPopulation enum)

gender

Gender to use to create the individual. (See Gender enum)

weight

Weight of the created individual

weightUnit

Unit in which the weight value is defined. Default is kg

height

Height of the created individual (for human species only)

heightUnit

Unit in which the height value is defined. Default is cm

age

Age of the created individual (for human species only)

ageUnit

Unit in which the age value is defined. Default is year(s)

gestationalAge

Gestational age of the created individual (for human species only using the Preterm population). Default is 40 Weeks

gestationalAgeUnit

Unit in which the gestational age value is defined. Default is week(s)

moleculeOntogenies

Optional list of MoleculeOntogeny that will be used to retrieve ontogeny information for molecules.

seed

Optional seed parameter to use to generate start values for the created individual algorithm. A MoleculeOntogeny is an object with the name a molecule property (e.g the name of the molecule as defined in your simulation) and an ontogeny property (e.g. the name of the predefined ontogeny to use for this molecule). The list of all available ontogenies can be accessed programmatically using the enum StandardOntogeny

## Value

An array of ParameterValue containing the value of each individual parameter
