CRAN Task View: Statistical Genetics

Maintainer:Giovanni Montana
Contact:g.montana at

Great advances have been made in the field of genetic analysis over the last years. The availability of millions of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in widely available databases, coupled with major advances in SNP genotyping technology that reduce costs and increase throughput, are enabling a host of studies aimed at elucidating the genetic basis of complex disease. The focus in this task view is on R packages implementing statistical methods and algorithms for the analysis of genetic data and for related population genetics studies.

A number of R packages are already available and many more are most likely to be developed in the near future. Please send your comments and suggestions to the task view maintainer.
