Barley CAP sponsored a workshop in San Diego in January 2010 entitled “Guidelines for Association Analysis of Barley CAP data.” The workshop was led by Peter Bradbury and Jean-Luc Jannink, both with USDA-ARS at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. They covered topics such as defining appropriate datasets for analysis, performing preliminary data analyses and data curation, steps to handle phenotypes from multi-environment trials, and why statistically accounting for population structure is important. These topics were followed by an extended hands-on session appropriate datasets for analysis, performing preliminary data analyses and data curation, steps to handle phenotypes from multi-environment trials, and why statistically accounting for population structure is important. These topics were followed by an extended hands-on session using the TASSEL platform to perform these analyses. Copies of the handouts are available here and here. If you have questions plan to attend the next workshop.
