MetaPhat -meta-pheno-association-tracker


MetaPhat is an active and open sourced (MIT license) tool to detect variants with multivariate associations by using summary statistics from univariate GWAS studies. The application also performs decomposition by finding optimal BIC subsets and P-value driver traits for the multivariate lead variants. Variant results are traced and clustered to assist with dissecting phenotypes-genotype relationships.

Please see our wiki home for installation instructions, required GWAS data formats and example inputs with test command - https://sourceforge.net/p/meta-pheno-association-tracer/wiki/Home/
