SimReg: Similarity Regression Functions

Functions for performing Bayesian ‘similarity regression’, specialised for modelling the association between a HPO-encoded phenotype and binary genotype. A ‘no association’ model is compared with one in which the log odds of having a rare genotype is linked to the semantic similarity between patient phenotype and a latent characteristic phenotype. The method estimates the probability of an association together with an HPO-coded phenotype characteristic of the disease.
