Integrative Genetic Association Analysis using Deterministic Approximation of Posteriors (DAP)

The current implementation is DAP-G!

This repository contains the software implementations for a suite of statistical methods to perform genetic association analysis integrating genomic annotations. These methods are designed to perform rigorous enrichment analysis, QTL discovery and multi-SNP fine-mapping analysis in a highly efficient way. The statistical model and the key algorithm, Deterministic Approximation of Posteriors (DAP), are described in this manuscript and this preprint

The repository includes source code, scripts and necessary data to replicate the results described in the manuscript. A detailed tutorial to guide the users through some specific analysis tasks is also included.

User manual

User manual for DAP-G is available in pdf and in html


We are in the process of updating the tutorial for the new DAP-G. The tutorial for the old version of DAP can be found here.
