famFLM: A region-based association test for familial data under functional linear models
A new and improved version of famFLM is now a part of the FREGAT R package available on CRAN The FREGAT package supplies the most common and efficient tests for the region-based association analysis aimed at identification of rare genetic variants for family-based, genetically related or population samples. Along with famFLM, burden tests, FFBSKAT and FFBSKAT optimal are implemented.
DOWNLOADS (Please use FREGAT package for newer version of famFLM() function!):
|famFLM R-function (with usage information inside):|
famFLM requires R packages 'GenABEL' (for null model estimation) and 'fda' (for functional basis estimation). To enable parallel calculation, packages 'foreach' and 'doSNOW' should be installed. To install R packages automatically from CRAN repositories, please use in R:
install.packages(c('GenABEL', 'fda', 'foreach', 'doSNOW'))
