How to get support

Here are few typical questions new GenABEL users may have:

How do I run a specific analysis?
  • Look through the general GenABEL tutorial [ Tutorials ] and decide on what package to use [ Packages ]
  • Carefully read the tutorial (if available) section specific to your analyses, figure out what functions you need to use, run the examples
  • Read help pages for relevant functions (in R, use 'help(functionname)'; or see Manuals section [ Manuals ])
  • If it is still not clear how to run the analysis, search GenABEL forum [ GenABEL forum ]
  • If you don't find an answer, ask your question at the GenABEL forum [ GenABEL forum ]
I want to do some special analysis, which does not seem to be supported. How can I figure out if there is a workaround or if this is a planned feature?
  • Look through the general GenABEL tutorial [ Tutorials ]
  • Search Tutorials [ Tutorials ] and Manuals [ Manuals ]
  • Search GenABEL forum [ GenABEL forum ]
  • If you can not find anything, ask your question at the GenABEL forum [ GenABEL forum ]. See example
  • If you don't find an answer, contact developers to file in feature request genabel-devel [at] lists [dot] r-forge [dot] r-project [dot] org
A command does not behave in a way I expect, is that a bug?
  • Read help pages for the functions (in R, use 'help(functionname)'; or see the Manuals section [ Manuals ])
  • Search the GenABEL forum [ GenABEL forum ]
  • If still not solved, post a suggested bug at the GenABEL forum [ GenABEL forum ]. See an example here.
  • If no answer, contact developers to file in feature request on the genabel-devel [at] lists [dot] r-forge [dot] r-project [dot] org
Can I get individual support?
  • If your research project falls into the area of interests of one of the developers, you can get an individual support in the collaboration format. Please write to the GenABEL-developers' mailing list (genabel-devel [at] lists [dot] r-forge [dot] r-project [dot] org) or contact one of the project coordinators (see the "People" page) [ People ]
  • There is also a consulting company providing GenABEL (and general statistical genetics) support on a commercial basis. Please ask details from one of the project coordinators (see the "People" page) [ People ]
