Google BigQuery can be used to perform a GWAS. Here are several examples:

To run this on your own data:

  1. First, load your data into Google Genomics and export your variants to BigQuery. See Load Genomic Variants for more detail as to how to do this.
  2. For data with non-variant segments (e.g, gVCF or Complete Genomics data), reshape the data into multi-sample variants format via Multi-Sample Variants Format
