An R package for subset-based association analysis of heterogeneous traits and subtypes

Bioconductor version: 3.16

An R package for subset-based analysis of heterogeneous traits and disease subtypes. The package allows the user to search through all possible subsets of z-scores to identify the subset of traits giving the best meta-analyzed z-score. Further, it returns a p-value adjusting for the multiple-testing involved in the search. It also allows for searching for the best combination of disease subtypes associated with each variant.
