SKAT 1.1.2

:: DESCRIPTION

SKAT (SNP-set (Sequence) Kernel Association Test)is a SNP-set (e.g., a gene or a region) level test for association between a set of rare (or common) variants and dichotomous or quantitative phenotypes, SKAT aggregates individual score test statistics of SNPs in a SNP set  and efficiently computes SNP-set level p-values, e.g. a gene or a region level p-value, while adjusting for covariates, such as principal components to account for population stratification.
