For this reason, phenome scans have to date tended to use a smaller homogeneous set of phenotypes that can be analysed in a consistent fashion. We present PHESANT (PHEnome Scan ANalysis Tool), a software package for performing comprehensive phenome scans in UK Biobank.</jats:p></jats:sec><jats:sec><jats:title>General features</jats:title><jats:p>PHESANT tests the association of a specified trait with all co...
