Efficient Score Statistics for Genome-Wide SNP Set Analysis

An implementation of the use of efficient score statistics in genome-wide SNP set analysis with complex traits. Three standard score statistics (Cox, binomial, and Gaussian) are provided, but the package is easily extensible to include others. Code implementing the inferential procedure is primarily written in C++ and utilizes parallelization of the analysis to reduce runtime. A supporting function offers simple computation of observed, permutation, and FWER and FDR adjusted p-values.


RSNPset v0.5.3 (Release date: 2017-12-11)

  • Minor bug fix for example code in function documentation

RSNPset v0.5.2 (Release date: 2017-02-20)

  • Minor bug fix for note about registering native routines under r-devel

RSNPset v0.5.1 (Release date: 2017-02-16)

  • Minor bug fix for warnings in vingette under r-devel
  • Changed names of two returned columns in rsnpset.pvalue() (and associated documentation) for consistency

RSNPset v0.5 (Release date: 2015-11-05)

  • Elements of results list for RSNPset S3 objects renamed to "Observed", "Replication.1", "Replication.2", ...
  • Argument pval.transform=TRUE now allowed in rspset.pvalue() for rsnpset() results with return.rank=FALSE
