MendelSearch is a component of the umbrella OpenMendel project. This package performs function optimization, and permits bounds and linear constraints to be imposed on parameters and, in statistical applications, computes asymptotic standard errors and correlations of parameter estimates. MendelSearch is necessary to run any OpenMendel analysis package, and you should install MendelSearch first, before you install the analysis packages. View the MendelSearch Documentation for in depth information about this package.
Note: The three OpenMendel packages (1) SnpArrays, (2) MendelSearch, and (3) MendelBase must be installed before any other OpenMendel package will run. It is easiest if these three packages are installed in the above order and before any other OpenMendel package.
Within Julia, use the package manager to install MendelSearch:
pkg> add https://github.com/OpenMendel/MendelSearch.jl.git
This package supports Julia v1.0+
