What is it about?

traseR is an R package that take in a set of genomic ranges as input, and produced a ranked list of diseases/traits that show enrichment in these regions of their associated SNPs identified by GWASs. We use GWAS-associated SNPs (or trait-associated SNPs) found from the association result browser.

Why is it important?

traseR is an easy-to-use computational tool that facilitate the establishment of connections between genomic intervals and possible disease susceptibility.


We believe the collection of GWAS associated SNPs is a tremendously useful resource. Our work illustrate just one of many ways to exploit such a valuable resource.
