    BACKGROUND: Breast and prostate cancer are two commonly diagnosed cancers in the United States. Prior work suggests that cancer causing genes and cancer susceptibility genes can be identified. METHODS: We conducted a ...
  • Newton-Cheh, Christopher; Guo, Chao-Yu; Wang, Thomas J; O'Donnell, Christopher J; Levy, Daniel; Larson, Martin G (BioMed Central, 2007-9-19)
    BACKGROUND: Heritable electrocardiographic (ECG) and heart rate variability (HRV) measures, reflecting pacemaking, conduction, repolarization and autonomic function in the heart have been associated with risks for cardiac ...
