    We developed a new marker-reordering algorithm to find the best order of fine-mapping markers for multipoint linkage analysis. The algorithm searches for the best order of fine-mapping markers such that the su...

    It is generally assumed that the detection of disease susceptibility genes via fine-mapping association study is facilitated by consideration of marker haplotypes. In this study, we compared the performance of...

    A common dilemma arising in linkage studies of complex genetic diseases is the selection of positive signals, their follow-up with association studies and discrimination between true and false positive results...

    Haplotypes, the combination of closely linked alleles that fall on the same chromosome, show great promise for studying the genetic components of complex diseases. However, when only multilocus genotype data a...

    Our goal was to compare methods for tagging single-nucleotide polymorphisms (tagSNPs) with respect to the power to detect disease association under differing haplotype-disease association models. We were also ...

    In genetic association studies, linkage disequilibrium (LD) within a region can be exploited to select a subset of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) to genotype with minimal loss of information. A novel e...
