This is the development version of genphen; for the stable release version, see genphen.

A tool for quantification of associations between genotypes and phenotypes with Bayesian inference and statistical learning techniques

Bioconductor version: Development (3.8)

Genetic association studies are an essential tool for studying the relationship between genotypes and phenotypes and thus for the discovery of disease-causing genetic variants. With genphen we propose a new method for conducting genetic association studies, using a combined approach which is based on both Bayesian inference and statistical learning techniques such as random forest and support vector machines.
