Title: “A tutorial for a multivariate linear mixed model based QTL(Quantitative Trait Loci) analysis tool : FlxQTL”
Abstract: FlxQTL is a Julia software package, developed for genetic mapping of multivariate traits faster with greater flexibility compared to existing linear mixed model based algorithms. It offers comprehensive functionalities for QTL analysis: genetic kinship computation, genome scan, pair scan, permutation test, and visualization, etc. In this talk, a step by step demo from the package installation to visualization will be presented using Arabidopsis thaliana data (Recombinant Inbred Lines).
Bio: Hyeonju Kim was awarded a PhD in Statistics at the University of Arizona and is currently a postdoctoral fellow working with the mentor, Dr. Saunak Sen in the division of
Biostatistics in the Preventive Medicine department at the UTHSC. Her areas of expertise are high-dimensional analysis for large-scale data using optimization techniques, stochastic processes and extreme value theory.
We look forward to seeing you all among us.
