Producing Open Source Software: Currently, the suite consists of 11 officially released tools cf. Region-based association analysis of human quantitative traits in related individuals. Furthermore, the paper is well written and it will undoubtedly be highly cited by future researchers.
Lastly, to reiterate, the GenABEL is a very impressive large scale project that is heavily used by the community!
It needs no explanation that this amounts to a waste of effort and money. In order to be able to maintain the quality of both old and new software in the GenABEL suite prospective tools go through a review process in which both the functional quality of the code is evaluated does the tool do what it intends to do?
In we have started to use a Jenkins Continuous Integration server. Unfortunately, creators of scientific software are usually not funded to actively build such a community.
Many tools are R packages, however, this is not a requirement for inclusion in the suite. An up-to-date list of the packages in the suite can be found on http: This article has been cited by other articles tutoriak PMC.

The authors declare no conflicts of interest in the authorship or publication of this contribution. 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.
Archived source code at the time of publication https: Collins FS, Varmus H: The total number of visits in that period wasof which came from unknown cities. Journal List FRes v. Moreover, compared to having individual users e-mailing a package author, who may be on holiday or otherwise unavailable, an open forum where users and developers collaborate helps in shortening the time-to-answer. Notes [version 1; referees: 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.

Therefore, the community has the option to mark a tool as obsolete, warning the user that bugs will no longer be fixed and support is limited or non-existent. In November a mailing list was created as a central place for development discussions. Within the project, statisticians devoted to method development work together with statistical geneticists and biologists to refine existing statistical methods as well as develop new ones tutoril make them applicable to genomic analysis.
Genome-wide association studies GWASgenotype imputation and next-generation sequencing NGS genanel just a few of the techniques used in this field that is driven by increasingly larger data sets 23. The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the genabell.
The GenABEL project aims to provide a framework for collaborative, sustainable, robust, transparent, opensource based development of statistical genomics methodology.

Other packages are planned to be added before the end of Once the paper describing the tool has been published, the tool is no longer developed further and is left to its own device.
Currently, a total of 94 bugs have been submitted to the bug trackers on R-forge and GitHub since their opening in andrespectively. The Story of an Accidental Revolutionary. These version control systems record any change to the files so they can easily be reviewed and reverted if necessary 729 In 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.

Collaborative software development using R-forge. The file Analytics www. Genabl 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.
Most scientific software is written by only a few authors, often a student working on a thesis. Furthermore, having an active forum where users can help each other allows the developers to focus on fixing bugs and implementing new features. As an example of the information that can be obtained from this data, Figure 2 shows the top 20 cities of origin of the visitors of the GenABEL website in the period of 28 April till 28 April The website was visited times in that period, of which visits were from an unknown city.
These users have contributed posts in topics, with an average 7. No competing interests were disclosed.
