This is the general disease or phenotypic
This is for sub-phenotype, endo-phenotype, locus
specific phenotype, or molecular phenotype.
There are 19 disease classes defined currently: aging, cancer, cardiovascular, chemdependency, developmental, hematological, immune, infection, metabolic, mitochondrial, neurological, normalvariation, pharmacogenomic, psych, renal, reproduction, vision, other or unknown (if the author did not identify a disease class).
This is a simple yes or no. In the paper, is the
gene associated with a phenotype (Y) or a lack of association (N). GAD will
display nothing (Null) if the author did not specify either way.

number of P-values under different assumptions or models. We are looking
for the best P-value.
