The GenABEL project - an outline

The mission of the GenABEL project is to provide a free framework
for collaborative, robust, transparent, open-source based development
of statistical genomics methodology. We aim to streamline methodology discussion, development, implementation, dissemination and maintenance; through the community.

The GenABEL suite (aka *ABEL suite) is practical result of
implementation of statistical genomics methods developed in the
GenABEL project. The GenABEL suite is an umbrella name for a number of
open-source software packages. The suite is
