MOTIVATION Exploring the genetic basis of heritable traits remains one of the central challenges in biomedical research. In traits with simple Mendelian architectures, single polymorphic loci explain a significant fraction of the phenotypic variability. However, many traits of interest seem to be subject to multifactorial control by groups of genetic loci. Accurate detection of such multivariate associations is non-trivial and often compromised by limited statistical power. At the same time… Expand
Multiplex confounding factor correction for genomic association mapping with squared sparse linear mixed model

Combining Sparse Group Lasso and Linear Mixed Model Improves Power to Detect Genetic Variants Underlying Quantitative Traits
TLDR
A new approach SGL-LMM is proposed that puts together sparse group lasso (SGL) and linear mixed model (LMM) for multivariate associations of quantitative traits and outperforms previous approaches in terms of power to detect associations and accuracy of quantitative trait prediction. Expand
A multi-marker association method for genome-wide association studies without the need for population structure correction
TLDR
A new GWA method, called Quantitative Trait Cluster Association Test (QTCAT), enabling simultaneous multi-marker associations while considering correlations between markers is developed, overcomes the need for population structure correction and also reflects the polygenic nature of complex traits better than single-markers methods.

Simultaneous SNP selection and adjustment for population structure in high dimensional prediction models
TLDR
This work proposes an alternative method for fitting high-dimensional multivariable models, which selects SNPs that are independently associated with the phenotype while also accounting for population structure and leads to better sensitivity and specificity compared to the two-stage approach or principal component adjustment with better prediction accuracy.

Understanding complex traits by non-linear mixed models
Population structure and other nuisance factors represent a major challenge for the analysis of genomic data. Recent advances in statistical genetics have lead to a new generation of methods forExpand
A new approach of dissecting genetic effects for complex traits
TLDR
The ISR provides an alternative for multi-loci GWAS, and the implementation was computationally efficient, analyzing large datasets practicable (n>100,000) and identified several new causal loci that other methods did not detect. Expand
Simultaneous SNP selection and adjustment for population structure in high dimensional prediction models
TLDR
A general penalized LMM with a single random effect called ggmix for simultaneous SNP selection and adjustment for population structure in high dimensional prediction models is developed, which leads to more parsimonious models compared to the two-stage approach or principal component adjustment with better prediction accuracy.
