Association of Arrhythmia-Related Genetic Variants With Phenotypes Documented in Electronic Medical Records.

Large-scale DNA sequencing identifies incidental rare variants in established Mendelian disease genes, but the frequency of related clinical phenotypes in unselected patient populations is not well established. Phenotype data from electronic medical records (EMRs) may provide a resource to assess the clinical relevance of rare variants.To determine the clinical phenotypes from EMRs for individuals with […]

Alternative contingency table measures improve the power and detection of multifactor dimensionality reduction.

Multifactor Dimensionality Reduction (MDR) has been introduced previously as a non-parametric statistical method for detecting gene-gene interactions. MDR performs a dimensional reduction by assigning multi-locus genotypes to either high- or low-risk groups and measuring the percentage of cases and controls incorrectly labelled by this classification – the classification error. The combination of variables that produces […]
