Software

The Division of Biostatistics offers the following software for download:

Quanto
Sample size and power
GxEscan
Detect GxE interactions in a genome-wide association study
PriorityPruner

Prune a list of SNPs that are in high linkage disequilibrium (LD) with other SNPs in the list, while preferentially keeping/selecting SNPs of higher priority (e.g., the most significant SNPs in a genome-wide association study).

Snagger

An extension to the existing open-source software Haploview, which uses pairwise r2 linkage disequilibrium between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) to select tagSNPs.

rAggr

rAggr finds proxy markers (SNPs and indels) that are in linkage-disequilibrium (LD) with a set of queried markers, using the 1000 Genomes Project and HapMap genotype databases.
