Multiple studies have illustrated that gene expression profiling of primary breast cancers throughout the final stages of tumor development can provide valuable markers for risk prediction of metastasis and disease sub typing. However, the identification of a biologically interpretable and universally shared set of markers proved to be difficult. Here, we(More)
We have extended our recently developed 2-step approach for gene-based analysis to the family design and to the analysis of rare variants. The goal of this approach is to study the joint effect of multiple single-nucleotide polymorphisms that belong to a gene. First, the information in a gene is summarized by 2 variables, namely the empirical Bayes estimate(More)
