batch

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Functions to allow you to easily pass command-line arguments into R, and functions to aid in submitting your R code in parallel on a cluster and joining the results afterward (e.g. multiple parameter values for simulations running in parallel, splitting up a permutation test in parallel, etc.). See `parseCommandArgs(...)' for the main example of how to use this package.

fbati

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Does family-based gene by environment interaction tests, joint gene, gene-environment interaction test, and a test of a set of genes conditional on another set of genes.

fgui

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Rapidly create a GUI interface for a function you created by automatically creating widgets for arguments of the function. Automatically parses help routines for context-sensitive help to these arguments. The interface essentially a wrapper to some Tcl/Tk routines to both simplify and facilitate GUI creation. More advanced Tcl/Tk routines/GUI objects can be incorporated into the interface for greater customization for the more experienced.

pbatR

cran
99.99th

Percentile

This R package provides power calculations via internal simulation methods. The package also provides a frontend to the now abandoned PBAT program (developed by Christoph Lange), and reads in the corresponding output and displays results and figures when appropriate. The license of this R package itself is GPL. However, to have the program interact with the PBAT program for some functionality of the R package, users must additionally obtain the PBAT program from Christoph Lange, and accept his license. Both the data analysis and power calculations have command line and graphical interfaces using tcltk.

thgenetics

cran
99.99th

Percentile

A step-up test for genetic rare variants in a gene or in a pathway. The method determines an optimal grouping of rare variants analytically. The method has been described in Hoffmann TJ, Marini NJ, and Witte JS (2010) <doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0013584>.
