Use of robust statistical methods to determine the effect of fragile X on means and variance components of a quantitative trait.

Abstract

Owing to the presence of outliers, an estimated 3.5% in the ridge breadth data and 1.7% in the height data, the effect of fragile X on height and ridge breadth was examined using robust statistical techniques for data collected from 54 families afflicted with this disorder. It is shown that fragile X affects ridge breadth and height in a different manner… (More)
