The identification and characterization of genes that influence the risk of common, complex multifactorial diseases, primarily through interactions with other genes and other environmental factors, remains a statistical and computational challenge in genetic epidemiology. This challenge is partly due to the limitations of parametric statistical methods for detecting genetic effects that are dependent solely or partially on interactions with other genes and environmental exposures. We previously… 
Model‐Based Multifactor Dimensionality Reduction for detecting epistasis in case–control data in the presence of noise
TLDR
Model‐Based Multifactor Dimensionality Reduction (MB‐MDR), a relatively new MDR‐based technique that is able to unify the best of both nonparametric and parametric worlds, was developed to address some of the remaining concerns that go along with an MDR analysis.
Log-linear model-based multifactor dimensionality reduction method to detect gene-gene interactions
TLDR
The log-linear model-based multifactor dimensionality reduction (LM MDR) method is proposed to improve the MDR in classifying sparse or empty cells and estimates frequencies for empty cells from a parsimonious log- linear model so that they can be assigned to high-and low-risk groups.
Model-Based Multifactor Dimensionality Reduction to detect epistasis for quantitative traits in the presence of error-free and noisy data
TLDR
The power of Model-Based Multifactor Dimensionality Reduction for quantitative traits to detect gene–gene interactions (epistasis) in the presence of error-free and noisy data is evaluated and phenotypic mixtures and genetic heterogeneity remain challenging for epistasis detection.
A Robust Multifactor Dimensionality Reduction Method for Detecting Gene–Gene Interactions with Application to the Genetic Analysis of Bladder Cancer Susceptibility
TLDR
A Robust Multifactor Dimensionality Reduction (RMDR) method is proposed that performs constructive induction using a Fisher's Exact Test rather than a predetermined threshold and is applied to the detection of gene–gene interactions in genotype data from a population‐based study of bladder cancer in New Hampshire.
Multifactor dimensionality reduction for detecting gene-gene and gene-environment interactions in pharmacogenomics studies.
TLDR
MDR is a nonparametric and model-free approach that has been shown to have reasonable power to detect epistasis in both theoretical and empirical studies and its application in pharmacogenomic studies is demonstrated.
Odds ratio based multifactor-dimensionality reduction method for detecting gene-gene interactions
TLDR
The OR MDR method provides not only the odds ratio as a quantitative measure of risk but also the ordering of the multilocus combinations from the highest risk to lowest risk groups, which is extremely informative in judging its importance as a risk factor.
Multifactor dimensionality reduction software for detecting gene-gene and gene-environment interactions
TLDR
A multifactor dimensionality reduction (MDR) method for collapsing high-dimensional genetic data into a single dimension thus permitting interactions to be detected in relatively small sample sizes is developed.
Power of multifactor dimensionality reduction and penalized logistic regression for detecting gene-gene Interaction in a case-control study
TLDR
This study compares the power of MDR and PLR for detecting two-way and three-way interactions in a case-control study through extensive simulations and suggests that MDR outperforms PLR in detecting gene-gene interaction on the real dataset.
Identification of gene‐gene interactions in the presence of missing data using the multifactor dimensionality reduction method
TLDR
A new EM Impute approach is considered to handle missing data more appropriately in MDR analysis and is compared with the three other current approaches in terms of power and precision.
Multifactor-dimensionality reduction versus family-based association tests in detecting susceptibility loci in discordant sib-pair studies
TLDR
The FBAT and MDR were compared in their ability to detect susceptibility loci using a discordant sib-pair dataset generated from the simulated data made available to participants in the Genetic Analysis Workshop 14.

New strategies for identifying gene-gene interactions in hypertension
TLDR
The general problem of identifying gene-gene interactions is reviewed and several traditional and several newer methods that are being used to assess complex genetic interactions in essential hypertension are described.
The effect that genotyping errors have on the robustness of common linkage-disequilibrium measures.
TLDR
It is found that genotyping error rates as small as 3% can have serious affects on these LD measures, depending on the allele frequencies and the assumed error model, and the robustness of D', r, Q, and d, in the presence ofgenotyping errors is compared.

TLDR
A review of the hypertension genetic literature reveals substantial evidence for the importance of both genetic and environmental contexts on the mapping between single locus polymorphisms and risk of disease and suggests the current reliance on simple single gene studies to elucidate the complex etiology of hypertension needs to undergo some kind of transformation.
