1.     Introduction

Recent advances in brain imaging and high throughput genotyping and sequencing techniques enable new approaches to study the influence of genetic variation on brain structure and function. HDBIG is a collection of software tools for high dimensional brain imaging genomics. These tools are designed to perform comprehensive joint analysis of heterogeneous imaging genomics data. HDBIG-SCCA-NC is an HDBIG toolkit focusing on Sparse Canonical Correlation Analysis (SCCA). The current version includes matlab implementation of the SCCA Model with a Generic Non-convex Penalty. It can be applied to examine the association between genetic variations and imaging phenotypes. See below for the relevant paper.
