BLINK™: Quickly Enhance Your Success to Map Genes

BLINK-genome analysis

BLINK™ implemented state of art algorithms developed by Zhiwu Zhang Lab, a lab of Statistical Genomics at Washington State University for the development of statistical methods and computing tools to promote genomic research. BLINK™ was designed to conduct Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) in a timely fashion to fully realize the potential values of your data. Both real and simulated data analyses demonstrated that BLINK improves statistical power compared to existing methods and also achieves an extremely high computing efficiency. Please see the details of the method published by Giga Science.
