Description

GS3 estimates effects of SNPs, either using a priori normal distributions (GBLUP), or the Bayesian Lasso or a mixture of π normal and 1-π a mass point at 0, namely BayesCπ.

The program is self-contained, using modules from Ignacy Misztal's BLUPF90 distribution at http://nce.ads.uga.edu/~ignacy. Some functions and subroutines have been taken from the Alan Miller web page. It has been tested with  NAG f95, ifort and gfortran >=4.3.

Gustavo de los Campos helped us with the heterogenous variances and an R code for the Bayesian Lasso.
