Common options

General options

Option Description
-h, --help Show this help message and exit.
-v, --version Show program’s version number and exit.
--debug Set the logging level to debug.

Input files

Option Description
--impute2 FILE The output from IMPUTE2.
--sample FILE The sample file (the order should be the same as in the IMPUTE2 files).
--pheno FILE The file containing phenotypes and co variables.
--extract-sites FILE A list of sites to extract for analysis (optional).

Output options

Option Description
--out FILE The prefix for the output files. [imputed_stats]

General options

Option Description
--nb-process INT The number of process to use. [1]
--nb-lines INT The number of line to read at a time. [1000]
--chrx The analysis is performed for the non pseudo-autosomal region of the chromosome X (male dosage will be divided by 2 to get values [0, 0.5] instead of [0, 1]) (males are coded as 1 and option ‘--gender-column‘ should be used).
--gender-column NAME The name of the gender column (use to exclude samples with unknown gender (i.e. not 1, male, or 2, female). If gender not available, use ‘None’. [Gender]

Dosage options

Option Description
--scale INT Scale dosage so that values are in [0, n] (possible values are 1 (no scaling) or 2). [2]
--prob FLOAT The minimal probability for which a genotype should be considered. [>=0.9]
--maf FLOAT Minor allele frequency threshold for which marker will be skipped. [<0.01]

Phenotype options

Option Description
--covar NAME The co variable names (in the phenotype file), separated by coma.
--categorical NAME The name of the variables that are categorical (note that the gender is always categorical). The variables are separated by coma.
--missing-value NAME The missing value in the phenotype file.
--sample-column NAME The name of the sample ID column (in the phenotype file). [sample_id]
--interaction NAME Add an interaction between the genotype and this variable.

Cox’s proportional hazard model options

Option Description
--time-to-event NAME The time to event variable (in the pheno file).
--event NAME The event variable (1 if observed, 0 if not observed).

Linear regression options

Option Description
--pheno-name NAME The phenotype.

Logistic regression options

Option Description
--pheno-name NAME The phenotype.

Linear mixed effects options

Option Description
--pheno-name NAME The phenotype.
--use-ml Fit the standard likelihood using maximum likelihood (ML) estimation instead of REML (default is REML).
--p-threshold FLOAT The p-value threshold for which the real MixedLM analysis will be performed. [<0.0001]

SKAT options

Option Description
--snp-sets FILE A file indicating a snp_set and an optional weight for every variant.
--outcome-type {continuous,discrete} The variable type for the outcome. This will be passed to SKAT.
--skat-o By default, the regular SKAT is used. Setting this flag will use the SKAT-O algorithm instead.
--pheno-name NAME The phenotype.
