Semi-Automated Quantitative Trait Genome-Wide Association Studies


The SAQT-GWAS approach consists of a LONI Pipeline workflow and a collection of R functions that together allow a user to quickly and easily conduct GWAS on thousands of different quantitative traits simultaneously and subsequently visualize the results.



Fast – 100s of QT-GWAS in ~10 minutes on the LONI cluster
Flexible – use any set of quantitative traits as inputs
Customizable – GWAS settings easily adjustable
Simple – interrogate results with provided functions
Powerful – enables systems-level exploration of genotype-phenotype associations
