Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

It gives p-values of the GEESPU tests and GEEaSPU test.

Usage

1
2
GEEaSPU(traits, geno, Z = NULL, model = c("binomial", "gaussian"),
  gamma = c(1:8, Inf), n.sim = 1000, corstr = "independence")

Arguments

traits

trait matrix. The row for individuals and the column for traits.

geno

A matrix of genetic information.

Z

covariates.

model

Use "gaussian" for a quantitative trait, and use "binomial" for a binary trait.

gamma

power used in GEEaSPU test. A vector of the powers.

n.sim

number of simulations.

corstr

a character string specifying the correlation structure. The following are permitted: "independence", "fixed", "stat_M_dep", "non_stat_M_dep", "exchangeable", "AR-M" and "unstructured"

Value

p-values for the GEE-SPU and GEE-aSPU test.
