Genome-wide ancestry association testing identifies a common European variant on 6q14.1 as a risk factor for asthma in African American subjects.


BACKGROUND Genetic variants that contribute to asthma susceptibility might be present at varying frequencies in different populations, which is an important consideration and advantage for performing genetic association studies in admixed populations. OBJECTIVE We sought to identify asthma-associated loci in African American subjects. METHODS We… (More)
