MDR 2.0 beta 4 released

We released this week a new version of our open-source multifactor dimensionality reduction (MDR) software package. It can be downloaded from sourceforge.net.

New features include our novel Spatially Uniform ReliefF (SURF) algorithm that improves the power to filter SNPs involved in interactions from a large list. The paper reporting these results is under review. SURF can also be combined with our previously developed Tuned ReliefF (TuRF) algorithm to give SURF and TuRF. There are also some minor bug fixes in this new version.
