Abstract

Quantification of the contribution of genetic variation to phenotypic variation for complex traits becomes increasingly computationally demanding with increasing numbers of SNPs and individuals. To meet the challenges in making feasible large scale studies, we present the REACTA software. Adapted from ACTA (and, in turn, GCTA), it is tailored to exploit the parallelism present in modern traditional and GPU-accelerated machines, from workstations to supercomputers.
