Description : genetic mapping considering population structure
EMMAX is a statistical test for large scale human or model organism
association mapping accounting for the sample structure. In addition
to the computational efficiency obtained by EMMA algorithm, EMMAX takes
advantage of the fact that each locus explains only a small fraction of
complex traits, which allows to avoid repetitive variance component
estimation procedure, resulting in a significant amount of increase in
computational time of association mapping using mixed model.
