Feedback form is now closed.
Analysis of high-throughput data can be improved by taking advantage of known relationships between observations. Matrix linear models provide a simple framework for encoding such relationships to enhance detection of associations. Estimation of these models is challenging when the datasets are large and when penalized regression is used. This talk will discuss implementing fast estimation algorithms for L1-penalized matrix linear models as a first-time Julia user and fluent R user. We will share our experiences using Julia as our platform for prototyping, numerical linear algebra, parallel computing, and sharing our method.
