With the advent of polyphenotype analysis as is now customary in e. Interaction with the user community The GenABEL project website is the central hub that points to package descriptions, tutorials, the development website, and other information for potential and existing users and developers.

The GenABEL Tutorial

Furthermore, the paper is well written and it will undoubtedly be highly cited by future researchers. Table 1 and two that are in beta stage. J Am Med Inform Assoc. This was achieved by using optimal hardware-tailored algorithms using state-of-the-art linear algebra kernels, incorporating optimizations and avoiding redundant computations.

Ggenabel includes functions to compute univariate and multivariate odds ratios of the predictors, the area under the receiver operating characteristic ROC curve AUC genabwl, Hosmer-Lemeshow goodness of fit test, reclassification table, net reclassification improvement and integrated discrimination improvement Support Center Support Center. These version control systems record any change to the files so they can easily be reviewed and reverted if necessary tutoral29 Each city name is followed by the two-letter ISO code of the country in which it is located.

All authors contributed to the review of the manuscript and agreed to the final content.

Ten simple rules for a successful cross-disciplinary collaboration. The GenABEL project aims to provide a framework for collaborative, sustainable, robust, transparent, opensource based development of statistical genomics methodology. Genaebl recent years, scientists and funding organizations alike have come to realize that in order to successfully tackle the challenges of the field, close collaboration between various disciplines, e.

It is my understanding that the manuscript is aimed at reaching potential new users, but even to old users, unaware of the possible new tools included in the GenABEL project. Having an open forum serves various purposes. The source code for the other packages can be downloaded from our website at http: Most scientific software is written by only a few authors, often a student working on a thesis.

Collecting visitor data like this helps getting an insight in the institutes that use software from the GenABEL suite, which can then be used to show the impact the tools have, e.

It is a computationally efficient solution for screening general forms of CH alleles in densely imputed microarray or whole genome sequencing datasets Rapid variance components-based method for whole-genome association analysis. Consequently, changes that break existing functionality are detected at an early stage, thus leading to tutorrial stable software releases. Furthermore, our open development process has resulted in transparent development of methods and software, including public code review, a large fraction of bugs being submitted by members of the community, and quick incorporation of bug fixes.

Moreover, our experience shows that once the peer-reviewed article describing a tool has been published, funding and time to continue development and support of that tool are usually limited or non-existent, and consequently, the tool often slowly fades into oblivion. Currently, a total of 94 bugs have been submitted to the bug trackers on R-forge and GitHub since their opening in andrespectively. The project has benefited from an open development model, facilitating communication and code sharing between the parties involved.

Genome-wide association studies GWASgenotype imputation and next-generation sequencing NGS are just a few of the techniques used in this field that is driven by increasingly larger data sets 23.

The original publication of the GenABEL package for statistical analysis of genotype data 10 has led to the evolution of a community which we now call the GenABEL project, which brings together scientists, software developers and end users with the central goal of making statistical genomics work by openly developing and subsequently implementing statistical models into user-friendly software.


I believe that I have an appropriate level of expertise to confirm that it is of an acceptable scientific standard.

The GenABEL Tutorial

A multi-language computing environment for literate programming and reproducible research. Nevertheless, despite limited amount of novel scientific ideas or scientific results in the current manuscript, the authors have clearly put a lot of work into creating a very impressive interactive user and developer community.

A genomic background based method for association analysis in related individuals. Indeed, this is reflected by more than citations according to google scholar for the original GenABEL paper published in An R package “VariABEL” for genome-wide searching of potentially interacting loci by testing genotypic variance heterogeneity.

The GenABEL Project for statistical genomics

Introduction The field of statistical gen- omics lies at the heart of current research into the genetic aetiology of human disease and personalized or precision medicine 1. Only visits lasting more than 60 seconds and from cities from which more than 15 visits originated were taken into account.

The Story of an Accidental Revolutionary. As indicated by its name, MixABEL is an R package for running genome-wide association analyses using mixed geenabel in quantitative traits.

The GenABEL project welcomes contributions of all sorts, from new tools to fixing spelling errors in the documentation, to bug reports and feature requests. Ten simple rules for the open development of scientific software. Other packages are planned to be added before the end of
