Common Kibra Alleles Are Associated with Human Memory Performance
Human memory is a polygenic trait. We performed a genome-wide screen to identify memory-related gene variants. A genomic locus encoding the brain protein KIBRA was significantly associated withExpand

A cluster of cholesterol-related genes confers susceptibility for Alzheimer's disease.
OBJECTIVE Polygenic diseases are related to the complex interplay of genetic variations. We evaluated whether clusters of cholesterol- and lipid-related genetic variations are associated withExpand
