SKAT: SNP-Set (Sequence) Kernel Association Test

Functions for kernel-regression-based association tests including Burden test, SKAT and SKAT-O. These methods aggregate individual SNP score statistics in a SNP set and efficiently compute SNP-set level p-values. Methods available in this package include SKAT described in Micheal Wu, Seunggeun Lee et al. (2011) <doi:10.1016/j.ajhg.2011.05.029>, SKAT-O in Seunggeun Lee et al. (2012) <doi:10.1093/biostatistics/kxs014>, combined test of rare and common variants in Iuliana Ionita-Laza and Seunggeun Lee et al. (2013) <doi:10.1016/j.ajhg.2013.04.015>, efficient resampling for binary traits in Seunggeun Lee et al. (2016) <doi:10.1093/biostatistics/kxv033>, and robust test for binary traits in Zhangchen Zhao et al. (2020) <doi:10.1016/j.ajhg.2019.11.012>.
