PARIS (Pathway Analysis by Randomization Incorporating Structure) is a tool for the analysis of pathways to aggregate signals in genome-wide association studies (GWAS) results. The PARIS algorithm clusters SNPs into LD, LE groups, creates groups according to pathways and tests the significance by permutation testing. The download requires registering.
