R qtl2: Rewrite of a very old R package
January 25, 2019
Karl Broman is Professor in the Department of Biostatistics & Medical Informatics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison; research in statistical genetics; developer of R/qtl (for R).
Karl received a BS in mathematics in 1991, from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, and a PhD in statistics in 1997, from the University of California, Berkeley; his PhD advisor was Terry Speed. He was a postdoctoral fellow with James Weber at the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation, 1997–1999. He was a faculty member in the Department of Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins University, 1999–2007. In 2007, he moved to the University of Wisconsin–Madison, where he is now Professor.
Karl is a Senior Editor for Genetics, Academic Editor for PeerJ, and a member of the BMC Biology Editorial Board.
Karl is an applied statistician focusing on problems in genetics and genomics – particularly the analysis of meiotic recombination and the genetic dissection of complex traits in experimental organisms. The latter is often called “QTL mapping.” A QTL is a quantitative trait locus – a genetic locus that influences a quantitative trait. Recently he has been focusing on the development of interactive data visualizations for high-dimensional genetic data; see his R/qtlcharts package and his D3 examples.
