WELCOME to TASSEL!
Welcome to the TASSEL-software forum. This
discussion group provides an online source of information about the program
TASSEL, for Association Mapping. The software and further information, as
well as links to the original publications, can be found at the Buckler Lab for
Maize Genetics and Diversity website, http://www.maizegenetics.net. R front-end for TASSEL (rtassel) is at https://bitbucket.org/bucklerlab/rtassel/src/master/
TASSEL is a software package to
evaluate genotype and traits associations with the tools of population and
quantitative genetics. TASSEL can handle datasets with
commonly encountered in the plant community, e.g. replicated trials, inbred
lines, and complex structured pedigrees. TASSEL also has
the latest and statistically most powerful approaches for association mapping
in complex populations [both General Linear Model (GLM) and Mixed Linear Model
(MLM)]. In the latest version, speed and memory efficiency have been important
foci so that it can now handle millions of SNPs and conduct powerful tests with
them much more rapidly than general purpose analysis packages.
TASSEL is an Open Source
software, and can be found at https://bitbucket.org/tasseladmin/tassel-5-source/wiki/Home
TASSEL user manual is available online at https://bitbucket.org/tasseladmin/tassel-5-source/wiki/UserManual. Additional help is available beyond this document. Users are
welcome to report bugs, request new features through the TASSEL website.
