Description Details Author(s) References See Also

Description

Matrix eQTL is designed for fast eQTL analysis of large datasets. Matrix eQTL can test for association between genotype and gene expression using linear regression with either additive or ANOVA (additive and dominant) genotype effects. The models can include covariates to account for such factors as population stratification, gender, clinical variables, and surrogate variables. Matrix eQTL also supports models with heteroscedastic and/or correlated errors, false discovery rate estimation and separate treatment of local (cis) and distant (trans) eQTLs.
