Statistical association tests for rare variants can be classified as the burden approach and the sequence kernel association test (SKAT) approach. The burden and SKAT approaches, originally developed for case-control analysis, have also been extended to family-based tests. In the presence of both case-control and family data for a study, joint analysis for(More)
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have become a common approach to identifying single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with complex diseases. As complex diseases are caused by the joint effects of multiple genes, while the effect of individual gene or SNP is modest, a method considering the joint effects of multiple SNPs can be more powerful(More)
Pathway analysis has become popular as a secondary analysis strategy for genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Most of the current pathway analysis methods aggregate signals from the main effects of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes within a pathway without considering the effects of gene-gene interactions. However, gene-gene interactions(More)
