Description

We have written the RMVMR R package to perform radial multivariable Mendelian randomization analyses, including heterogeneity statistics for assessing instrument strength and validity. The package accommodates any number of exposures less than 6, and is currently includes a range of functions for estimating causal effects, as well as assessing conditional instrument strength and pleiotropic bias.
