Ghat: Quantifying Evolution and Selection on Complex Traits

Functions are provided for quantifying evolution and selection on complex traits. The package implements effective handling and analysis algorithms scaled for genome-wide data and calculates a composite statistic, denoted Ghat, which is used to test for selection on a trait. The package provides a number of simple examples for handling and analysing the genome data and visualising the output and results. Beissinger et al., (2018) <doi:10.1534/genetics.118.300857>.
