AlphaLearn is an R package containing practical exercises used in short courses given by the Hickey group. Exercises include an introduction to the breeder’s equation, basic concepts of marker imputation, and the application of genomic selection. Also included are introductions to several of the software programs developed by the Hickey group.
AlphaLearn is part of a suite of software that our group has developed for imputation. It is fully and freely available to all academics. User is however requested to credit its use on any publications. However, due to our contractual obligations with some of the funders of the research program that has developed this suite of software all commercial organisations that wish to use it are requested to contact John Hickey (email@example.com) to discuss the terms under which it can be used.
AlphaLearn is available from this link.
