beta.data: Beta Data Of SNP Regressed on Causal Variables and Disease

Description Usage Format Details Value Source References Examples

Description

Beta data are a matrix dataset consisting of 5 columns: cad, ldl, hdl, tg, and tc with 368 rows.

Usage

1
data("beta.data")

Format

A data frame with 368 observations on the following 5 variables.

cad

a numeric vector

ldl

a numeric vector

hdl

a numeric vector

tg

a numeric vector

tc

a numeric vector

Details

Beta data are a matrix consisting of regression coefficients of 368 SNPs on cad, ldl, hdl, tg, tc where cad is coronary artery disease, ldl is low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, hdl, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, tg,triglycerides and tc, total cholesterol in plasma. These 368 SNPs were obtained by using mktable from GWAS meta-analyzed data.

Value

A set of real regression coefficients of 368 SNPs on disease and causal variables.
