WISARD: workbench for integrated superfast association studies for related datasets

BMC Med Genomics
PMCID: 5918457
PMID: 29697360
DOI: 10.1186/s12920-018-0345-y

[…] six predefined causal genes of 200 simulated phenotypes in GAW17. Their estimated statistical powers were compared with existing toolsets for family-based analyses: MONSTER [], famSKAT [], and famBT, FFBSKAT, MLR in FREGAT [], as well as the methods for analysis of independent samples: SKAT and CMC. […]


Adaptive Combination of P Values for Family Based Association Testing with Sequence Data

PLoS One
PMCID: 4277421
PMID: 25541952
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0115971

[…] A method to deal with pedigree data, and compare its power performance with that of the burden test , the kernel statistic , and the FFBSKAT method (famSKAT and ASKAT are essentially equivalent to FFBSKAT). We also apply the method to the Genetic Analysis Workshop 17 (GAW 17) data , . Some family-based association testing methods were designed for trio data (or trios plus unrelated controls), s […]
