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.
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.
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.
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.
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>.
