INTRODUCTION
==INTRODUCTION==
The key idea behind meta-analysis with RAREMETAL is that various gene-level test statistics can be reconstructed from single variant score statistics and that, when the linkage disequilibrium relationships between variants are known, the distribution of these gene-level statistics can be derived and used to evaluate signifi-cance. Single variant statistics are calculated using the Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel method. Our method has been published in [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24336170 '''Liu et. al''']The main formulae are tabulated in the following:
