We assessed gene expression profiles in 2,752 twins, using a classic twin design to quantify expression heritability and quantitative trait loci (eQTLs) in peripheral blood. The most highly heritable genes (∼777) were grouped into distinct expression clusters, enriched in gene-poor regions, associated with specific gene function or ontology classes, and(More)

Genomes of men and women differ in only a limited number of genes located on the sex chromosomes, whereas the transcriptome is far more sex-specific. Identification of sex-biased gene expression will contribute to understanding the molecular basis of sex-differences in complex traits and common diseases. Sex differences in the human peripheral blood(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability of surface electromyography of the masticatory muscles in patients with cerebral palsy. METHODS Surface electromyography was performed over the masseter and temporal muscles in 15 patients with cerebral palsy with the mandible at rest and during maximum clenching effort in two sessions.(More)
MOTIVATION We address a common problem in large-scale data analysis, and especially the field of genetics, the huge-scale testing problem, where millions to billions of hypotheses are tested together creating a computational challenge to control the inflation of the false discovery rate. As a solution we propose an alternative algorithm for the famous(More)
