Genome wide genetic heterogeneity discovery with categorical covariates

PMCID: 5870548
PMID: 28200033
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btx071

[…] In a GWAS, spurious associations between genotype and the trait of interest are often found due to confounding factors such as gender, age or population structure (). The ability of FastCMH to handle categorical covariates can be used to correct for such confounding variables. In the COPD study, defining the covariate is straightforward: we define the categorical covariate c as t […]
