    Citation: BMC Proceedings 2014 8(Suppl 1):S102
  2. In Genetic Analysis Workshop 18 data, we used a 3-stage approach to explore the benefits of pathway analysis in improving a model to predict 2 diastolic blood pressure phenotypes as a function of genetic varia...

  3. Genome wide association studies (GWAS) have been used to search for associations between genetic variants and a phenotypic trait of interest. New technologies, such as next-generation sequencing, hold the pote...

  4. Pathway analysis approaches for sequence data typically either operate in a single stage (all variants within all genes in the pathway are combined into a single, very large set of variants that can then be an...

  5. We conduct pedigree-based linkage and association analyses of simulated systolic blood pressure data in the nonascertained large Mexican American pedigrees provided by Genetic Analysis Workshop 18, focusing on...

    Citation: BMC Proceedings 2014 8(Suppl 1):S107
  6. We apply a multiphase strategy for pedigree-based genetic analysis of systolic blood pressure data collected in a longitudinal study of large Mexican American pedigrees. In the first phase, we conduct variance...

    Citation: BMC Proceedings 2014 8(Suppl 1):S108
  7. We conducted linkage analysis using the genome-wide association study data on chromosome 3, and then assessed association between hypertension and rare variants of genes located in the regions showing evidence...

  8. Two-point linkage analyses of whole genome sequence data are a promising approach to identify rare variants that segregate with complex diseases in large pedigrees because, in theory, the causal variants have ...

  9. To realize the full potential of next-generation sequencing, it is important to consider multiple sources of genetic information, including inheritance, association, and bioinformatics. To illustrate the promi...
