      A computationally fast measure of epistasis for 2 SNPs and a categorical phenotype. 

      Antoniades, Athos; Matthews, P. M.; Pattichis, Constantinos S.; Galwey, N. W. (2010)
      Complex diseases may be caused by interactions or combined effects between multiple genetic and environmental factors. One of the main limitations of testing for interaction between genetic loci in large whole genome studies ...
