QAAFI Student Workshop

ASReml-R for Linear Mixed Model analysis of breeding data

Mon 26 Mar 2018 9:00amWed 28 Mar 2018 4:00pm


Level 4, South Wing, Hartley Teakle Building #83, The University of Queensland, St Lucia.
83-S428 & 83-S430

Workshop topics:

  • Introduction to using R and simple matrix algebra
  • Introduction to fitting simple linear models in R with ASReml
  • Methods for spatial analysis in univariate mixed linear models
  • Methods for mutli-location mixed linear models
  • Methods for repeated measures mixed linear models
  • Methods for mixed linear models incorporating genetic structure

Workshop details

For each of these modules, there will be a 30-40 minute lecture on theoretical background followed by 1-2 hour demonstration or prepared script which we work through.

Each participant will be required to have their own laptop with R, R studio and ASReml installed. A temporary license for ASReml will be made available to participants. No prior knowledge of R or ASReml is assumed, although a little working knowledge of R will be advantageous.

Morning and Afternoon Tea & Coffee will be provided.

Registration: Until 21 March 2018
