NAM-package: Nested Association Mapping

Description Details Author(s) See Also


Designed for association studies in nested association mapping (NAM) panels, also handling experimental and random panels. The method is described by Xavier et al. (2015) <doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btv448>. It includes tools for genome-wide associations of multiple populations, marker quality control, population genetics analysis, genome-wide prediction, solving mixed models and finding variance components through likelihood and Bayesian methods.
