Abstract

Motivation: Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) summary statistics have popularized and accelerated genetic research. However, a lack of standardization of the file formats used has proven problematic when running secondary analysis tools or performing meta-analysis studies. Results: To address this issue, we have developed MungeSumstats, a Bioconductor R package for the standardization and quality control of GWAS summary statistics. MungeSumstats can handle the most common summary statistic formats, including variant call format (VCF) producing a reformatted, standardized, tabular summary statistic file, VCF or R native data object.
