We propose a genetic association analysis using Dirichlet regression to analyze the Genetic Analysis Workshop 18 data. Clinical variables, arranged in a longitudinal data structure, are employed to fit a multistate transition model in which the transition probabilities are served as a response in the proposed analysis. Furthermore, a gene-based association(More)
Lung cancer etiology is multifactorial, and growing evidence has indicated that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are important players in lung carcinogenesis. We performed a large-scale meta-analysis of 690,564 SNPs in 15,531 autosomal lncRNAs by using datasets from six previously published genome-wide association studies (GWASs) from the Transdisciplinary(More)
We applied a gene-based haplotype approach for the genome-wide association analysis on hypertension using Genetic Analysis Workshop 18 data for unrelated individuals. Association of single-nucleotide polymorphisms and clinical outcome were first assessed and haplotypes were then constructed based on the gene information and the linkage disequilibrium plot.(More)
