GWAtoolbox is an R-package for fast quality control and data handling of multiple data files obtained from genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Thought to be employed as a preprocessing tool in the meta-analysis of GWA data, GWAtoolbox can process multiple GWA data files in a few minutes. Output consists in an extensive list of quality statistics and graphical output, to give a comprehensive overview of the data that are going to be meta-analyzed.
