[…] probe the number of false positive snps included in the prediction model, we injected phoney snps into the rectal bleeding modeling process. to do this, we generated 60,000 synthetic snps using the gwasimulator ( relying on hapmap ceu data. with a p-value cutoff of 0.001, 74 snps remained. we combined these snps with 749 snps […]

[…] genotype data of the individuals in the general population based on the observed haplotype distributions in 180 kb and 174 kb regions of chromosomes 18 and 21 from the hapmap ceu samples using gwasimulator [], respectively. thus, the simulated individuals have genotypes in the regions of chromosomes 18 and 21 with similar ld structure to that of the hapmap ceu samples. we chose a pair […]

[…] analyzed the simulated gwas data sets with the wga, the psa, and the wei. for the wei, we followed genovese et al. to specify r at 2, 5, or 10., we used a rapid whole-genome simulation program, the gwasimulator (, to generate gwas data sets. the gwasimulator implements a rapid moving-window algorithm to simulate whole genome […]

[…] entries and those that deviate from hardy–weinberg equilibrium with p-values below 5 × 10−7 (). see supplementary table s6 for more details and the number of subjects and snps in each dataset., the gwasimulator program () produces case and control genome-wide snp genotypes under a logistic regression disease model. it takes as input a control file that specifies various parameters […]

[…] be simulated directly and only the required number of cases and controls needs to be simulated. this second approach has been used by many simulation programs, such as hapsample [], hapgen [] and gwasimulator []. as a compromise between these two approaches, a rejection-sampling algorithm can be used to simulate samples without simulating a large population (for example, genomesimla []).
