Parameters | Genetics | Perform EigenCorr to select PCs

Check this box to use EigenCorr scores^{1}to determine which principal components to include in the regression.The p-value for testing for nonzero correlation between each principal component (PC) and the trait variable is calculated. PCs with significant p-values, based on the Multiple Testing Method and alpha level for selecting a PC that are specified, are included in the model to adjust for population stratification.Note: This method can be performed only when a single variable is specified in the Trait Variables field.
