GBJ: Generalized Berk-Jones Test for Set-Based Inference in Genetic
Offers the Generalized Berk-Jones (GBJ) test for set-based inference in genetic
association studies. The GBJ is designed as an alternative to tests such as Berk-Jones (BJ),
Higher Criticism (HC), Generalized Higher Criticism (GHC), Minimum p-value (minP), and Sequence
Kernel Association Test (SKAT). All of these other methods (except for SKAT) are also implemented
in this package, and we additionally provide an omnibus test (OMNI) which integrates information from each of the tests.
The GBJ has been shown to outperform other tests in genetic association studies when signals
are correlated and moderately sparse. Please see the vignette for a quickstart guide or the paper at
<doi:10.1080/01621459.2019.1660170> for full details.
