We have developed an array-based whole-genome genotyping (WGG) assay (Infinium) using our BeadChip platform that effectively enables unlimited multiplexing and unconstrained single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) selection. A single tube whole-genome amplification reaction is used to amplify the genome, and loci of interest are captured by specific(More)
Between 1976 and 1990, we treated 56 isthmic spondylolisthesis patients with an average age of 15 + 4 (range, 4 + 9 to 27 +/- 2) with in situ bilateral transverse process fusions utilizing autogenous iliac bone graft. None of the patients had a decompression or instrumentation placed. Radiographic fusion was determined from standing spot lateral radiographs(More)
In the current study, we investigated whether standard assessment techniques of visuospatial neglect are sensitive to detecting dissociable subtypes. We administered a battery of tasks commonly used to detect the presence of visuospatial neglect to 120 patients with unilateral right hemisphere infarcts and, in most cases, performed a systematic analysis of(More)
The voice and role of "patient" in patient safety were explored by the Calgary Health Region's Patient and Family Safety Council perspective and the Calgary Health Region, Calgary, Alberta, Canada--an important collaboration for enhanced patient safety. Insights into patient safety were shared and coauthored in this article by the Patient and Family Safety(More)
To characterize the extent and impact of ancestry-related biases in precision genomic medicine, we use 642 whole-genome sequences from the Consortium on Asthma among African-ancestry Populations in the Americas (CAAPA) project to evaluate typical filters and databases. We find significant correlations between estimated African ancestry proportions and the(More)
A primary goal of The Consortium on Asthma among African-ancestry Populations in the Americas (CAAPA) is to develop an 'African Diaspora Power Chip' (ADPC), a genotyping array consisting of tagging SNPs, useful in comprehensively identifying African specific genetic variation. This array is designed based on the novel variation identified in 642 CAAPA(More)
