Rank-Based Inverse Normal Transformation
Rank-Based Inverse Normal Transformation of Phenotype
Vector of phenotype which is the quantitative trait.
Adjust parameter, commonly as 0,1/3,3/8 or 1/2.
Some variables are not normally distributed. And using statistical tests on this data can give misleading results because they do not meet the statistical assumptions. This function implements Rank-Based Inverse Normal Transformation to make phenotype normally distributed.
Return vector of rank-based inverse normal transformed phenotype.
