  1. Resource Description
    "SKAT is a R package for performing (1) association tests between a set of common and rare SNPs and continuous and dichotomous (case-control) phenotypes using kernel machine methods for data from GWAS and genome-wide sequencing association studies (2) sample size and power calculatons for sequencing association studies."
