qingyuanzhao/mr.raps: Two Sample Mendelian Randomization using Robust Adjusted Profile Score
Version 0.3

Mendelian randomization is a method of identifying and estimating a confounded causal effect using genetic instrumental variables. This packages implements methods for two-sample Mendelian randomization with summary statistics by using Robust Adjusted Profile Score (RAPS).
