Growing evidence suggests that iron accumulation in the substantia nigra (SN) is involved in the pathology of Parkinson's diseases (PD). Divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1) is an endogenous transporter for ferrous iron, the levels of which are significantly increased in the SN in postmortem PD brains. To study the possible association of DMT1 gene with PD(More)
In recent imaging genetic studies, much work has been focused on regression analysis that treats large-scale single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and quantitative traits (QTs) as association variables. To deal with the weak detection and high-throughput data problem, feature selection methods such as the least absolute shrinkage and selection operator(More)
