Knowledge of an individual's human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genotype is essential for modern medical genetics, and is crucial for hematopoietic stem cell and solid-organ transplantation. However, the high levels of polymorphism known for the HLA genes make it difficult to generate an HLA genotype that unambiguously identifies the alleles that are present at(More)
The immune response HLA class II DRB1 gene provides the major genetic contribution to Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), with a hierarchy of predisposing through intermediate to protective effects. With JIA, and the many other HLA associated diseases, it is difficult to identify the combinations of biologically relevant amino acid (AA) residues directly(More)
The Biostatistics Component of the 13th International Histocompatibility Workshop (IHWS) developed the PyPop (Python for Population Genomics) software framework for high-throughput analysis and quality control (QC) assessments of highly polymorphic genotype data. Since its initial release, the software has had several new analysis modules added to it. These(More)
