Web site for R package solarius


This web page is about R package solarius developed in the UCGD research group, Institute of Biomedical Research of Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Barcelona, Spain. The package provides an interface to SOLAR: Sequential Oligogenic Linkage Analysis Routines program, which in turn has been designed in the Department of Genetics of Texas Biomedical Research Institute.

The idea of solarius is simple. Do calculus in SOLAR at back-end. Make user interface in R at front-end. That is.

Too little science here.
