ABSTRACT
Summary: METAL provides a computationally efficient tool for meta-
analysis of genome-wide association scans, which is a commonly
used approach for improving power complex traits gene mapping
studies. METAL provides a rich scripting interface and implements
efficient memory management to allow analyses of very large data
sets and to support a variety of input file formats.
Availability and implementation: METAL, including source code,
documentation, examples, and executables, is available at http://
