Summary

In this report, we introduce an R package KMgene for performing gene-based association tests for familial, multivariate or longitudinal traits using kernel machine (KM) regression under a generalized linear mixed model framework. Extensive simulations were performed to evaluate the validity of the approaches implemented in KMgene.
