Software

rrBLUP

rrBLUP is an R package for genome-wide prediction and GWAS. Go to the homepage on CRAN for the latest version and the reference manual. For additional help with genome-wide prediction, check out this tutorial.  Please cite our publication if you use the software.   If you are primarily interested in GWAS, try the GWASpoly package described below, which has better GWAS functionality, works for any ploidy level, and utilizes rrBLUP for the mixed model analysis.

GWASpoly

GWASpoly is an R package for genome-wide association studies in autopolyploids (and diploids). Please cite our publication if you use the software. The package, tutorial, and reference manual can be downloaded here.

LPmerge

LPmerge is an R package for building consensus maps across multiple populations through linear programming (LP). Please cite the published manuscript if you use the software, which can be downloaded from CRAN. The following tutorial illustrates how to use LPmerge with a real barley dataset.

GSdesign

GSdesign is an R package in the early stages of development. At the moment it includes a function for designing preliminary yield trials with genome-wide markers. If you use GSdesign for a publication, please cite this paper. The source package and reference manual can be downloaded here.
