Although genetic association studies using unrelated individuals may be subject to bias caused by population stratification, alternative methods that are robust to population stratification such as family‐based association designs may be less powerful. Recently, various statistical methods...
Haplotype sharing analysis was used to investigate the association of affection status with single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) haplotypes within candidate gene 1 in one sample each from the isolated and the general population of Genetic Analysis Workshop (GAW) 12 simulated data. Gene 1 has...
Genome‐wide association studies may be necessary to identify genes underlying certain complex diseases. Because such studies can be extremely expensive, DNA pooling has been introduced, as it may greatly reduce the genotyping burden. Parallel to DNA pooling developments, the importance of...
Association mapping in linked regions is a current major approach for the identification of genes for complex diseases. Loci contributing to linkage, even with small values of sibling recurrence risk (ॕs), may be equivalent to substantial underlying genetic effects for association studies. For...
Gibbs sampling‐based generalized linear mixed models (GLMMs) provide a convenient and flexible way to extend variance components models for multivariate normally distributed continuous traits to other classes of phenotype. This includes binary traits and right‐censored failure times such as...
Association studies depend on linkage disequilibrium (LD) between a causative mutation and linked marker loci. Selecting markers that give the best chance of showing useful levels of LD with the causative mutation will increase the chances of successfully detecting an association. This report...
Biological mechanisms that involve gene‐by‐environment interactions have been hypothesized to explain susceptibility to complex familial disorders. Current research provides compelling evidence that one environmental factor, which acts prenatally to increase susceptibility, arises from a...
Family studies to identify disease‐related genes frequently collect only families with multiple cases. It is often desirable to determine if risk factors that are known to influence disease risk in the general population also play a role in the study families. If so, these factors should be...
