SEAGLE Package for R


An R package for Large-Scale Set-Based Gene-Environment Interaction Tests in Biobank Data


About the package

The SEAGLE package for R is software for Large-Scale Set-Based Gene-Environment Interaction Tests in Biobank Data. The package is available on CRAN at https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=SEAGLE and on GitHub at https://jocelynchi.github.io/SEAGLE/.

Data for Tutorials in Examples 3 and 4

The example GWAS and next generation sequencing data for Example 3 at https://jocelynchi.github.io/SEAGLE/ can be downloaded from http://jocelynchi.com/SEAGLE/SEAGLE-example3-data.zip.

The example GWAS data from chromosome 22 for Example 4 at https://jocelynchi.github.io/SEAGLE/ can be downloaded from http://jocelynchi.com/SEAGLE/SEAGLE-example4-data.zip.

Many thanks to Yueyang Huang for generating the example GWAS and next generation sequencing data and the PLINK1.9 code for these tutorials.
