  • Guo, Chao-Yu; Cui, Jing; Cupples, L Adrienne (BioMed Central, 2005-12-30)
    The transmission/disequilibrium test was introduced to test for linkage disequilibrium between a marker and a putative disease locus using case-parent trios. However, parental genotypes may be incomplete in such a study. ...

    In genome-wide genetic studies with a large number of markers, balancing the type I error rate and power is a challenging issue. Recently proposed false discovery rate (FDR) approaches are promising solutions to this ...
  • Holloway, Dustin T.; Kon, Mark; DeLisi, Charles (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2006-10-31)
    High throughput technologies, including array-based chromatin immunoprecipitation, have rapidly increased our knowledge of transcriptional maps-the identity and location of regulatory binding sites within genomes. Still, ...

  • Ray, Surajit; Kepler, Thomas B (BioMed Central, 2007-10-29)
    BACKGROUND. A key step in the development of an adaptive immune response to pathogens or vaccines is the binding of short peptides to molecules of the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) for presentation to T lymphocytes, ...
  • Guo, Chao-Yu (BioMed Central, 2007-12-18)
    The transmission/disequilibrium test was introduced to test for linkage and association between a marker and a putative disease locus using case-parent triads. Several extensions have been proposed to accommodate incomplete ...
  • Chen, Ming-Huei; Cui, Jing; Guo, Chao-Yu; Cupples, L Adrienne; Van Eerdewegh, Paul; Dupuis, Josée; Yang, Qiong (BioMed Central, 2007-12-18)
    There has been a growing interest in developing strategies for identifying single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that explain a linkage signal by joint modeling of linkage and association. We compare several existing ...
  • Nariai, Naoki; Kolaczyk, Eric D.; Kasif, Simon (Public Library of Science, 2007-3-28)
    Dramatic improvements in high throughput sequencing technologies have led to a staggering growth in the number of predicted genes. However, a large fraction of these newly discovered genes do not have a functional assignment. ...
