Herein we introduce a new, computationally efficient, group test that accounts for rich confounding structure and demonstrate its application to three GWAS data sets, for smoking, Crohn’s disease and hypertension.
An efficient group test for genetic markers that handles confounding
On WTCCC Crohn’s and hypertension, the uncorrected analysis yielded respectively and , while the LMM yielded respectively and . Although some might consider a of as still moderately inflated, increasingly it is being shown that complex traits are highly polygenic (Yang et al. 2011) which can lead to increases in .
