workflowr checks: (Click a bullet for more information)
  • R Markdown file: up-to-date

    Great! Since the R Markdown file has been committed to the Git repository, you know the exact version of the code that produced these results.

  • Repository version: e364292

    Great! You are using Git for version control. Tracking code development and connecting the code version to the results is critical for reproducibility. The version displayed above was the version of the Git repository at the time these results were generated.

    Note that you need to be careful to ensure that all relevant files for the analysis have been committed to Git prior to generating the results (you can use wflow_publish or wflow_git_commit). workflowr only checks the R Markdown file, but you know if there are other scripts or data files that it depends on. Below is the status of the Git repository when the results were generated:
    Ignored files:
        Ignored:    .Rproj.user/
    Note that any generated files, e.g. HTML, png, CSS, etc., are not included in this status report because it is ok for generated content to have uncommitted changes.

This is my online notebook to document and share the full results of genome-wide enrichment analyses described in the manuscript:

Xiang Zhu and Matthew Stephens (2017). A large-scale genome-wide enrichment analysis identifies new trait-associated genes, pathways and tissues across 31 human phenotypes. bioRxiv.

The software that was used to generate these results is available at Here is an example illustrating how to use this software in enrichment analyses of GWAS summary statistics.

If you find results shown in this notebook and/or methods implemented in the software useful for your work, please cite the manuscript listed above, Zhu and Stephens (2017).

If you have any question about this notebook or the software, please feel free to contact me: Xiang Zhu, or
