Each city name is followed by the two-letter ISO code of the country in which it is located. Here we describe the broad, multidisciplinary community we formed around a set of tools for statistical genomics.
DatABEL is an R interface to our filevector library which provides a file gemabel that is optimised for fast access to data in matrix form, e. N Engl J Med. The use of a free software licence for the tools in the GenABEL suite promotes quick uptake and widespread dissemination of new methodologies and tools. I have read this submission.
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. 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.
Moreover, because of this openness results of the project i. ProbABEL package for genome-wide association analysis of imputed data. I therefore think this is overall a nice publication that is certainly suitable for indexation.
Using Jenkins various tests e. The big challenges of big data. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Currently, a total of 94 bugs have been submitted to the bug trackers on R-forge and GitHub since their opening in andrespectively.
Interaction with the user community is done via social media like Twitter https: Support Center Support Center. It contains a high-performance computing based approach facilitating extremely fast mixed-model based regression of multiple omics traits like metabolomics or lipidomics on imputed genotype data Variance heterogeneity analysis for detection of potentially interacting genetic loci: Community-driven computational biology with Debian Linux.
Table 1 and two that are in beta stage.
The GenABEL Project for statistical genomics
All authors contributed to the review of the manuscript and agreed to the final content. In we have started to tutoriql a Jenkins Continuous Integration server. Other packages are planned to be added before the end of In short, it is a form of agile community-driven development 11 With the advent of polyphenotype analysis as is now customary in e.
Torvalds L, Diamond D: No competing interests were disclosed. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Best practices for scientific computing. Accepted May Tutoriao collaborative nature of the project is demonstrated in the GenABEL package as it implements several statistical methods developed within the framework, including approximate mixed models 21 — 23 and various methods for genomic control 24genabsl Lastly, to reiterate, the GenABEL is genabsl very impressive large scale project that is heavily used by the community!
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.
The GenABEL Tutorial
Such heterogeneity is an indication of interaction between a genetic marker and either another marker or an unknown factor 16 Developer discussions take place on a dedicated mailing list, and development is further supported by robust development practices including use of public version control, code review and continuous integration. This very well written article describes the GenABEL project for statistical genomics and high lightens the great success of the project, that in the years has lead to the creation of an actual scientific community that is spread in several countries worldwide.
The source code for the other packages can be downloaded from our website at http: Agile methods in biomedical software development: 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.

As of April this list has 34 subscribers. GWAS usually involves meta-analysis of the regression results of various cohorts. Currently, the suite consists of 11 officially released tools cf.
This shows that the project is really a platform for implementation of statistical methods which removes the burden of thinking about data formats etc. 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.
