Summary: GWAF, Genome-Wide Association analyses with Family, is an R package designed for GWAF. It implements association tests between a batch of genotyped or imputed single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and a binary or continuous trait with user specified genetic model, and generates informative results from the analyses. In addition, GWAF provides functions to visualize results. We evaluated GWAF using a simulated continuous trait and a binary trait dichotomized from the simulated continuous trait with real genotype data from the Framingham Heart Study's SNP Health Association Resource project.
