Enhanced statistical tests for GWAS in admixed populations: assessment using African Americans from CARe and a Breast Cancer Consortium

PLoS Genetics

May 5, 2011

Abstract

While genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have primarily examined populations of European ancestry, more recent studies often involve additional populations, including admixed populations such as African Americans and Latinos. In admixed populations, linkage disequilibrium (LD) exist...read more

Coronary Artery Aneurysm

Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.

Genetic Epidemiology Of Complex Diseases

Genetic epidemiology examines the role of genetic factors in determining health and disease in populations and the interaction between these genetic factors with environmental factors. Here is the latest research on the genetic epidemiology of complex multifactorial diseases like cancer.
