Cross-Platform Association Toolkit (XPAT)

The Cross-Platform Association Toolkit (XPAT) includes a suite of tools designed to support and conduct sequencing association studies involving technologically heterogeneous datasets. The toolkit includes software to support parallelized joint variant calling pipelines, cross-platform quality control at both the sample level and variant level, rare variant effect size estimation, and gene-based association testing with over 30 tests supported. XPAT will be freely available for download for academic use upon publication.
