During the last weeks I updated a couple of my R-packages. The main work went into the GenomicTools package, though it required also adjustments to the two packages GenomicTools.fileHandler and hoardeR.
The changes are mainly in user-friendliness and bugfixing to catch special cases of data inputs. If someone uses the packages and finds any other bugs or has suggestions for improvements, please drop me an email, or contact me via the corresponding GitHub project page of the packages.
Today I gave a talk at the annual meeting of the The Finnish Society of Biostatistics. The title was ‘On the use of containerization, versioning and online repositories for reproducible research’, the slides can be found here.
And as I was in Helsinki, the obligatory church picture must not be forgotten.
Today our article ‘A splice site variant in INPP5E causes diffuse cystic renal dysplasia and hepatic fibrosis in dogs’ got published in Plos One.
Currently, I am visiting the Wellcome Trust Campus in Hinxton, near Cambridge, England, to attend two conferences. First, there is the Genome Information conference and that is followed straight by the Livestock Genomics workshop.
Our Manuscript ‘Computing the Oja Median in R: The Package OjaNP’ with Karl Mosler, Jyrki Möttönen, Klaus Nordhausen, Oleksii Pokotylo and Daniel Vogel got conditionally accepted for publication in the ‘Journal of Statistical Software’. However, the publication will unfortunately take still a while, the Editor wrote to me that ‘Due to various major changes in JSS over the last years, the publication delay (between being added to the queue and final publication) is currently about one year.‘.
In that sense, you can still check out an earlier, unformatted version here from ArXiv or contact me for the latest version of it. I’ll be happy to share the final version of the document with you.
