GWAsimulator 2.1

:: DESCRIPTION

GWAsimulator is a C++ program that can simulate genotype data for SNP chips that are used in genome-wide association (GWA) studies. It implements a rapid moving-window algorithm (Durrant et al. 2004. AJHG 75:35-43) to simulate whole genome case-control or population samples. It also can simulate specific regions if desired. For case-control data, the program retrospectively sample cases and controls according to a user-specified multi-locus disease model. The program requires phased data as input, and the simulated data will have similar LD patterns as the input data.
