simPathAR1Snp {aSPU}R Documentation

Simulating a pathway with multiple SNPs.

Description

It gives a simulated SNPs consisting of multiple genes in a pathway. Each SNPs from a latent multivariate Gaussian variable with an AR1 correlation structure.

Usage

simPathAR1Snp(
  nGenes = 10,
  nGenes1 = 5,
  nSNPs = NULL,
  ncSNPs = NULL,
  nSNPlim = c(1, 20),
  nSNP0 = 1:3,
  LOR = 0.3,
  n = 100,
  MAFlim = c(0.05, 0.4),
  rholim = c(0, 0),
  p0 = 0.05,
  noncausal = FALSE
)

Arguments

nGenes

The number of total genes.

nGenes1

The number of causal genes.

nSNPs

A vector, length matched with total number of genes. Each elements of vector indicate the number of SNPs in the gene. Default is nSNPs = NULL, in this case the number of nSNPs randomly selected from nSNPlow to nSNPup.

ncSNPs

A vector, length matched with total number of genes. Each elements of vector indicate the number of causal SNPs in the gene. Default is ncSNPs = NULL, in this case the number of ncSNPs are randomly selected from nSNP0.

nSNPlim

If nSNPs = NULL, the number of SNPs in Gene randomly selected from the ranges in nSNPlim.

nSNP0

If ncSNPs = NULL, the number of causal SNPs in Gene randomly selected from nSNP0. Default is 1:3.

LOR

Association in log OR between a causal SNP and outcome.

n

# of cases (= # of controls).

MAFlim

MAF's of the SNPs are drawn from Unif(MAFlim[1], MAFlim[2]).

rholim

the SNPs in eahc gene are from a latent Normal variable with a AR(rho) corr structure, rho's are drawn from Unif(rholim[1], rholim[2]); the SNPs in diff genes are independant.

p0

background disease prevalence;i.e. intercept=log(p0/(1-p0)).

noncausal

exclude causal SNPs if TRUE, it is the simulation set up d in the paper(Pan et al 2015).

Value

a list of the binary outcome Y (=0 or 1) and SNPs (=0, 1 or 2); Y is a vector of length 2n; X is a matrix of 2n by nSNP.
