R/lmmlite is an R package for fitting linear mixed models for genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping.

I’m following the code in pylmm, and really I’m developing this package mostly so that I can better understand pylmm.

The code is on GitHub.

Installation

You can install R/lmmlite from GitHub.

You first need to install the devtools and RcppEigen packages. (Rcpp will also be installed.)

install.packages(c("devtools", "RcppEigen"))

Then use devtools::install_github() to install R/lmmlite.

library(devtools)
install_github("kbroman/lmmlite")

The code was developed following study of Nick Furlotte’s pylmm code.
