GLMaSPU: An Adaptive Test on High Dimensional Parameters in Generalized Linear Models

Several tests for high dimensional generalized linear models have been proposed recently. In this package, we implemented a new test called adaptive sum of powered score (aSPU) for high dimensional generalized linear models, which is often more powerful than the existing methods in a wide scenarios. We also implemented permutation based version of several existing methods for research purpose. We recommend users use the aSPU test for their real testing problem. You can learn more about the tests implemented in the package via the following papers: 1. Pan, W., Kim, J., Zhang, Y., Shen, X. and Wei, P.
