lschen-stat/ofGEM: A Meta-Analysis Approach with Filtering for Identifying Gene-Level Gene-Environment Interactions with Genetic Association Data
Version 1.0

Offers a gene-based meta-analysis test with filtering to detect gene-environment interactions (GxE) with association data. It first conducts a meta-filtering test to filter out unpromising SNPs by combining all samples in the consortia data. It then runs a test of omnibus-filtering-based GxE meta-analysis (ofGEM) that combines the strengths of the fixed- and random-effects meta-analysis with meta-filtering. It can also analyze data from multiple ethnic groups.
