The rapid growth of human genetics creates countless opportunities for studies of disease association. Given the number of potentially identifiable genetic markers and the multitude of clinical outcomes to which these may be linked, the testing and validation of statistical hypotheses in genetic epidemiology is a task of unprecedented scale. Meta-analysis provides a quantitative approach for combining the results of various studies on the same topic, and for estimating and explaining their diversity. Here, we have evaluated by meta-analysis 370 studies addressing 36 genetic associations for various outcomes of disease. We show that significant between-study heterogeneity (diversity) is frequent, and that the results of the first study correlate only modestly with subsequent research on the same association. The first study often suggests a stronger genetic effect than is found by subsequent studies. Both bias and genuine population diversity might explain why early association studies

Established guidelines for causal inference in epidemiological studies may be inappropriate for genetic associations. A consensus process was used to develop guidance criteria for assessing cumulative epidemiologic evidence in genetic associations. A proposed semi-quantitative index assigns three levels for the amount of evidence, extent of replication, and protection from

The publication of Khush et al. in this months issue (1) provides an opportunity to consider some of the challenges in doing genetic association studies in transplantation. While rigid rules for such manuscript submissions are neither warranted nor desirable, there are several guidelines published for gene association study publications that are well worth reviewing (2,3). These guidelines are also directly relevant to gene association studies in transplantation and the Journal does not need to create any new guidelines for this reason. Thus, in the present editorial, I will use this new article in the Journal to consider some science-based guidelines specifically for transplantation.. There is no question that the physiological stability of the donor prior to surgical organ recovery is a significant factor in effectively managing the donor procedure, influences the selection for cardiac donation and impacts the early posttransplant course of the recipients. With that context, Khush et al. ...
The development of congenital heart defects (CHDs) involves a complex interplay between genetic variants, epigenetic variants, and environmental exposures. Previous studies have suggested that susceptibility to CHDs is associated with maternal genotypes, fetal genotypes, and maternal-fetal genotype (MFG) interactions. We conducted a haplotype-based genetic association study of obstructive heart defects (OHDs), aiming to detect the genetic effects of 877 SNPs involved in the homocysteine, folate, and transsulfuration pathways. Genotypes were available for 285 mother-offspring pairs with OHD-affected pregnancies and 868 mother-offspring pairs with unaffected pregnancies. A penalized logistic regression model was applied with an adaptive least absolute shrinkage and selection operator (lasso), which dissects the maternal effect, fetal effect, and MFG interaction effects associated with OHDs. By examining the association between 140 haplotype blocks, we identified 9 blocks that are potentially ...

The American Genetic Association (AGA), formerly the American Breeders Association, is a USA-based learned society dedicated to the study of genetics. Founded in 1903, the organization publishes the Journal of Heredity. The American Genetic Association (AGA), formerly the American Breeders Association, is a professional organization founded to encourage the study of comparative genetics and genomics, and to promote the application of genetic and genomic methods to the documentation, conservation, and management of organismal diversity. The American Breeders Association held its first meeting in 1903 to discuss the new science of genetics that arose from Charles Darwins theory of evolution and Gregor Mendels discoveries of the laws of inheritance. The organization was established to study the laws of breeding and to promote the improvement of plants and animals by the development of expert methods of breeding. [1] In 1914, the American Breeders Association broadened its scope and became ...

The goal of the PhLiPS study is to create a library of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines and iPSC-derived hepatocytes of diverse genotypes for use in metabolic profiling and interrogating lipid phenotypes. These cell lines were created as a part of the Next Generation Genetic Association Studies (Next Gen) Program, which was a five-year, $80 million program to investigate functional genetic variation in humans by assessing cellular profiles that are surrogates for disease phenotypes. To achieve this, researchers from multiple institutions across the U.S. were awarded grants to derive iPSC lines from more than 1,500 individuals representing various conditions as well as healthy controls for use in functional genomic (disease in a dish) research. This extensive panel includes a diverse set of age, gender, and ethnic backgrounds, and therefore will be an invaluable tool for evaluations across demographics. Further enhancing the utility of these cell lines are data sets such as ...
© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014. The quest to discover genetic variants that affect the human brain will be accelerated by screening brain images from large populations. Even so, the wealth of information in medical images is often reduced to a single numeric summary, such as a regional volume or an average signal, which is then analyzed in a genome wide association study (GWAS). The high cost and penalty formultiple comparisons often constrains us from searching over the entire image space. Here, we developed a method to compute and boost power to detect genetic associations in brain images. We computed voxel-wise heritability estimates for fractional anisotropy in over 1,100 DTI scans, and used the results to threshold FA images from new studies. We describe voxel selection criteria to optimally boost power, as a function of the sample size and allele frequency cut-off. We illustrate our methods by analyzing publicly-available data from the ADNI2 project.

To find the MLE, the likelihood function is first obtained, which is given by n L(θ ,x1 , . . , xn ) = f (xi ,θ ), i=1 where f (x,θ ) is the PDF or the distribution function. We often use L(θ ) for the likelihood function. An estimate of θ , denoted by θ , is the MLE for θ if it maximizes the likelihood function. , Θ = (0, 1) for the binomial probability p. Then the MLE θ satisfies L(θ ) = max L(θ ). 6) We may also write θ = arg max L(θ ) = arg max l(θ ), θ∈Θ θ∈Θ where l(θ ) = log L(θ ) is the log-likelihood function. 0 ≤ x ≤ n. Let Xi be the number of ith outcomes of a multinomial random variable. The mean and variance of Xi are given by E(Xi ) = npi and Var(Xi ) = pi (1 − pi )/n. The covariance of two outcomes Xi and Xj is given by Cov(Xi , Xj ) = −pi pj /n for i = j . Thus, Corr(Xi , Xj ) = − pi pj . (1 − pi )(1 − pj ) The Normal Distribution The normal distribution is the most commonly used distribution in statistics. Let X be a random variable that ...

We investigated several gene-based grouping strategies for rare variants and analyzed both the real and simulated phenotype data. We observed that further restriction of rare variants based on annotation is promising (e.g., from coding to protein damaging); however, we did not observe statistically significant results after adjusting for multiple hypothesis testing. The strategies presented so far focused on coding variants. We also considered two other strategies that include non-coding variants but restricted to variants that belong to conservation tier 1 group (T1) (PhastCons score ,0 and PhyloP score ,1) and tier 2 group (T2) (PhastCons ,400 and PhyloP score ,1.5) (see Nalpathamkalam et al [13] for more details on these annotation strategies). These lead to grouping variants from the same gene, which are (d) protein-changing or conservative T1 variants with 11,227 high-quality variants and (e) protein-damaging or conservative T2 variants with 4196 high-quality variants (Table 2). These ...
Since the discovery of the first gene causing holoprosencephaly (HPE), over 500 patients with mutations in genes associated with non-chromosomal, non-syndromic HPE have been described, with detailed descriptions available in over 300. Comprehensive clinical analysis of these individuals allows examination for the presence of genotype-phenotype correlations. These correlations allow a degree of differentiation between patients with mutations in different HPE-associated genes and for the application of functional studies to determine intragenic correlations. These early correlations are an important advance in the understanding of the clinical aspects of this disease, and in general argue for continued analysis of the genetic and clinical findings of large cohorts of patients with rare diseases in order to better inform both basic biological insight and care and counseling for affected patients and families.

Scientists at 23andMe and Genentech have identified 17 new genetic variants associated with Parkinsons disease, almost doubling the total number of known risk variants for the condition, which gives scientists hints at potential new targets for drugs to treat the disease.
Suicidal behaviours, which range from suicidal ideation to suicide attempts and completed suicide, represent a fatal dimension of mental ill-health. The involvement of genetic risk factors in suicidal behaviour is supported by family, twin, and adoption studies. The aim of this paper is to review recent genetic association studies in suicidal behaviours including (i) case-control studies, (ii) family-based association studies and (iii) genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Various studies on genetic associations have tended to suggest that a number of genes (e.g., tryptophan hydroxylase, serotonin receptors and transporters or brain-derived neurotrophic factors) are linked to suicidal behaviours, but these findings are not consistently supported by the results obtained. Although the candidate-gene approach is useful, it is hampered by the present state of knowledge concerning the pathophysiology of diseases. Interpretations of GWAS results are mostly hindered by a lack of annotation describing the

We investigated whether a polymorphic marker of the IGF-1 gene is associated with the presence of ROA at knee, hand, hip, and spine. In a population-based cohort of 786 subjects, the frequency of the subjects heterozygous for the IGF-1 allele A3 was found to be approximately two times increased in ROA+ subjects compared with ROA− subjects (adjusted OR 1.9, 95% CI 1.2, 3.1). A 3.5 times increased frequency of the A3/A3 homozygous IGF-1 genotype was observed among subjects with ROA+ (adjusted OR 3.6, 95% CI 0.8, 16.2). The latter association was not significant, probably because of the small number of subjects homozygous for IGF-1 allele 3 (for ROA− n= 3, for ROA+ n=23). The associations observed were not explained by age, sex, BMD, or BMI.7 10 11 The deviation of IGF-1 allele A4 may be a consequence of compensating allele frequencies. Moreover, no association was found between IGF-1 alleles and BMD or BMI nor did we observe an association of IGF-1 locus with the presence of osteophytes in the ...

This year we have also provided some guidance on the requirements for publication of genetic association studies in Thorax. We noticed that many studies submitted have been underpowered or poorly designed, and we have published an editorial containing guidance on some of the key issues that need to be addressed when assessing the validity of genetic association studies. Already the standard of genetics papers in the journal has improved, and we urge our authors to study these requirements.8,9. We have continued to develop our educational features, including Airwaves at the front of the journal, Lung Alerts (short summaries of papers published in general and non-respiratory journals and serviced by our younger readers),10 and Images in Thorax.6 This series has proved very popular and educational and we have received 111 high quality submissions for the Images series over the year. The series has been available free of charge since November 2003 in a collection on the Thorax website ...

Ene izmed najbolj pogostih zgodnjih genetskih študij na področju shizofrenije so bile tako imenovane asociacijske študije (gene association studies). Osnova asociacijskih študij je hipoteza skupne bolezni - skupnih variacij. Hipoteza predpostavlja, da so kompleksne motnje rezultat več genskih variacij z majhnimi učinki, ki si jih deli pomemben delež posameznikov z določeno motnjo ali boleznijo 11. Številne asociacijske študije so tako skušale odkriti ključne genske variacije, povezane s shizofrenijo. Kot najbolj konsistentno odkriti kandidati genskih variacij so se med drugimi izkazali: serotoninski receptor 2A (5-HT2A), 12, dopaminski-3 receptor 13, gen COMT, ki kodira encim katehol-O-metiltransferaza 14, AKT1 in DIC115. Vseeno pa je treba poudariti, da ti (in številni drugi) kandidati genov pojasnijo le majhen delež variacije tveganja za razvoj shizofrenije ter so povezani z zelo majhnimi ocenami tveganja (razmerje obetov; odds ratio - OR pod 1,20c). Pri asociacijskih študijah ...
