MTaSPUs {aSPU}R Documentation

The SPU and aSPU tests for multiple traits - single SNP association with GWAS summary statistics.

Description

SNP based adaptive association test for multiple phenotypes with GWAS summary statistics.

Usage

MTaSPUs(Z, v, B, pow, transform = FALSE, Ps = FALSE)

Arguments

Z

matrix of summary Z-scores, SNPs in rows and traits in columns. Or a vector of summary Z-scores for a single snp

v

estimated correlation matrix based on the summary Z-scores (output of estcov)

B

number of Monte Carlo samples simulated to compute p-values, the maximum number of MC simulations is 1e8

pow

power used in SPU test. A vector of the powers.

transform

if TRUE, the inference is made on transformed Z

Ps

TRUE if input is p-value, FALSE if input is Z-scores. The default is FALSE.

Value

compute p-values for SPU(gamma) i.e. pow=1:8, and infinity aSPU, based on the minimum p-values over SPU(power) each row for single SNP
