Recently, Nicola Pirastu has kindly agreed to act as a moderator at the GenABEL forum.
With the new year comes good news: ProbABEL v0.3.0 has been released today.
This release marks the end of a lot of work done on the internals of ProbABEL, which was started earlier this year by Maarten Kooyman. The most important thing a user will notice is an approximately four-fold speed increase when running palinear with the --mmscore option as well as possible speed increases in other use cases as well.
In his e-mail to the development mailing list of 2012-12-21 Maarten explains his work in more detail, including a few graphs of the speed gains.
We are happy to announce a new release of ProbABEL: version 0.2.2 is out!
This version is an incremental update of v0.2.0, featuring several bug fixes and some new functionality in the probabel.pl script.
We have started a series of the GenABEL project video tutorials
GenABEL package, v. 1.7-2, is on now CRAN now and can be installed using command 'install.packages("GenABEL")'.
On Sunday, Sept. 16, 2012, Nature Genetics published the paper "Rapid variance components–based method for whole-genome association analysis" by Svisheva, Belonogova, Axenovich, van Duijn and Aulchenko.
It is our pleasure to announce the new release of the "pacoxph-fix" branch of ProbABEL which fixes bug [#1846] (discrepancy between results obtained using imputed dosage and probability information). The fix of this bug was sponsored by Radboud University Medical Centre, Nijmegen, The Netherlands (Prof. Kiemeney) who holds the copyright of the changes, but was willing to release the resulting code under the standard free open source GNU GPL license.
After several days of "blackout", the GenABEL website and forum are up and running again.
It has been more than a year since the last ProbABEL release. Therefore, we are happy to announce a new release of ProbABEL: version 0.2.0 is out!
