Path analysis of family data has been widely applied to resolve genetic and environmental patterns of familial resemblance. A prevalent statistical approach in path analysis has been, first, to estimate the familial correlations and, second, by assuming these estimates to be independently...
Simulated multigenerational pedigrees were analyzed using the program GENPED and POINTER to examine the 1) limits of segregation analysis for detecting single locus, two‐allele transmission of a dichotomous trait and 2) accuracy of the parameter estimates. Ten data sets of 30 pedigrees each...
Although stuttering is known to be a familial disorder, no clear evidence regarding precise mode of transmission has arisen from previous research. In this report segregation analysis is applied to data on 386 stuttering probands and their first‐degree relatives in an effort to discriminate...
A model is presented for the effects of one or two loci, a measured index of the environment and genotype × environment (G×E) interaction of risk for a discontinuous trait. Initial properties of the model are explored for the single locus case, with and without the effects of environment and...
It is often of interest to know whether there is increased occurrence of a trait in a pedigree or other structured set of epidemiological data. In answering such questions most current methods use aggregate measures, such as relative risk, that may not relate the outcome for each individual to...
An analysis of hydatidiform moles occurring in Hawaii over a 14‐year period (1968–1981) was undertaken. The pathology of all 278 reported molar pregnancies was reviewed and showed 69.4% to be complete, 24.5% to be partial, and 6.1% to be nonmolar. A case‐control epidemiological...
