GWAPower

Permits calculation of genome wide association studies (GWAS) with quantitative traits. GWAPower allows genetic researchers to use the genetic term, heritability, instead of the general statistical term, ‘phenotype means of each genotype’, in power calculations. It can be used for general genetic studies if researchers wish to use heritability as the parameter for genetic effect size. The tool ignores some complicating factors such as population stratification, various interactions among genetic variants, and environmental factors.

FINDOR / Functionally Informed Novel Discovery Of Risk loci

Leverages polygenic functional enrichment to improve association power. FINDOR is an integrative Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) framework for functionally-informed novel discovery of risk loci. It can provide a substantial increase in power – particularly for studies with smaller effective sample sizes, such as studies of disease traits. The aim of this method is to re-weight Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNPs) according to how well they tag heritability enriched categories.
