In genome-wide association studies (GWAS), the association between each single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and a phenotype is assessed statistically. To further explore genetic associations in GWAS, we considered two specific forms of biologically plausible SNP-SNP interactions, 'SNP intersection' and 'SNP union,' and analyzed the Crohn's Disease (CD)(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The prevalence of Huntington's disease (HD) among East Asians is less than one-tenth of that among Caucasians. Such a low prevalence may be attributable to a lack of carriers of specific predisposing haplogroups associated with the high instability of the Huntingtin gene (HTT). The aim of this study was to evaluate the association(More)
BACKGROUND Genome-Wide Association (GWA) analysis is a powerful method for identifying loci associated with complex traits and drug response. Parts of GWA analyses, especially those involving thousands of individuals and consuming hours to months, will benefit from parallel computation. It is arduous acquiring the necessary programming skills to correctly(More)
Tuberculosis (TB) is a complex disease, and both genetic and environmental factors contribute to disease progression. A previous genome-wide linkage study in Thailand determined that chromosome 20p13-12.3 may contain risk factors for young-onset disease. The present study aimed to identify novel susceptibility genes for young-onset TB within a 1-Mbp target(More)

Copy number variation (CNV) is a major genetic polymorphism contributing to genetic diversity and human evolution. Clinical application of CNVs for diagnostic purposes largely depends on sufficient population CNV data for accurate interpretation. CNVs from general population in currently available databases help classify CNVs of uncertain clinical(More)
Thailand's history goes back more than 700 years, and since 1782, Bangkok has been the capital. The population of Thailand in 2013 was 69.52 million, ranked 20th in the world ( More than 14 million (or 22% of the total population) live in the Bangkok Metropolitan Region, located in Central Thailand(More)
