The GenABEL Project for statistical genomics

It enables a free flow of information between the layers in the project resulting in rapid feedback between the various levels. Currently, the suite consists of 11 officially released tools cf. OmicABEL aims to increase computational throughput while tuyorial memory usage and energy consumption. Collins FS, Varmus H: Agile methods in biomedical software development: Ten simple rules for a successful cross-disciplinary collaboration.

DatABEL is an R interface to our filevector library which provides a file format that is optimised for fast access to data in matrix form, e.

Table 1 and two that are in beta stage. Rapid variance components-based method for whole-genome association analysis.

It needs no explanation that this amounts to a waste of effort and money. Lastly, to reiterate, the GenABEL is a very impressive large scale project that is heavily tuorial by the community! Journal List FRes v.

Moreover, because of this openness results of the project i. Each city name is followed by the two-letter ISO code of the country in which it is located. This shows that the project is really a platform for tutirial of statistical methods which removes the burden of thinking about data formats etc.

Feedback from end users is actively encouraged through a web forum, which steadily grows into a knowledge base with a multitude of answered questions. Furthermore, having an active forum where users can help each other allows the developers to focus on fixing tenabel and implementing new features.


The use of a free software henabel for the tutorila in the GenABEL suite promotes quick uptake and widespread dissemination of new methodologies and tools. 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. Many tools are R packages, however, this is not a requirement for inclusion in the suite. I believe that I have an appropriate level of expertise to confirm that it is of an acceptable scientific standard.

The Story of an Accidental Revolutionary. ProbABEL package for genome-wide association analysis of imputed data. Indeed, this is reflected by more than citations according to google scholar for the original GenABEL paper published in It includes functions to compute univariate and multivariate odds ratios of the predictors, the area under the receiver operating characteristic ROC curve AUCHosmer-Lemeshow goodness of fit test, reclassification table, net reclassification improvement and gwnabel discrimination improvement Therefore, these were counted manually.

A new initiative on precision medicine. High-performance mixed models based genome-wide association analysis with omicABEL software [version 1; referees: With the advent of polyphenotype analysis as is now customary in e. Conclusion 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.

The GenABEL project website is the central hub that points to package descriptions, tutorials, the development website, and other information geanbel potential and existing users and developers. J Am Med Inform Assoc.

Currently, a total of 94 bugs have been submitted to the bug trackers on R-forge and GitHub since their opening in andrespectively. Only visits lasting more than 60 seconds and from cities from which more than 15 visits originated were taken into account.


The GenABEL Project for statistical genomics

It is the second most-used tool from the suite with more than citations according to Google Scholar The software tools developed withing the project collectively make up the GenABEL suite, which currently consists of eleven tools. Most scientific software is written by only a few authors, often a student working on a thesis. 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.

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.

Producing Open Source Gebabel Approved Giulietta MinozziReferee 1. A web forum is used to channel user questions and discussions, further promoting the use of the GenABEL suite. It is therefore tempting to question the novelty of the current paper that summarizes the GenABEL project and describes its user and developer community. An up-to-date list of the packages in the suite can be found on http: Other packages are planned to be added before the end of 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.

This very well written genabeel 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.
