BOOST 20101230 / GBOOST 20130821

:: DESCRIPTION

BOOST (BOolean Operation based Screening and Testing) is a method for detecting gene-gene interactions. It allows examining all pairwise interactions in genome-wide case-control studies in a remarkably fast manner. Interaction analyses on seven data sets from the Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium were carried out.

GBOOST is a GPU-implementation of BOOST based on the CUDA technology by Nvidia.
