[…] number of tests performed, significance levels were defined at adjusted alpha 10%. genomic inflation factors (gif) were estimated for the two pqtl analyses using estlambda function available in the genabel r package [21]. pairwise linkage disequilibrium (ld) was calculated with ldlink, a web-based application using 1000 genome phase 3 data [22]., association between circulating angptl3 […]

[…] for the gwas, each pea-signal was adjusted for significant covariates from the combined models and rank-transformed to normality by using the ‘rntransform’ function from the r-package genabel(v1.8.0)51. the nsphs includes related individuals and special care has to be taken to avoid relational biases. therefore, all genetic association calculations were carried out as described […]

[…] alone, without implementing a two panel imputation., association tests were performed on genotypes in the mach dosage format (0–2) converted from the impute genotype posterior probabilities using genabel (23), and haplotype analyses were performed on ‘best guess’ genotypes converted using gengen; calls are generated only, if the posterior probability is higher than 0.9, unless otherwise […]
