A flexible Bayesian framework for modeling haplotype association with disease, allowing for dominance effects of the underlying causative variants.
Multilocus analysis of single-nucleotide-polymorphism (SNP) haplotypes may provide evidence of association with disease, even when the individual loci themselves do not. Haplotype-based methods are expected to outperform single-SNP analyses because (i) common genetic variation can be structured into haplotypes within blocks of strong linkage disequilibrium and (ii) the functional properties of a protein are determined by the linear sequence of amino acids corresponding to DNA variation on a h...Expand abstract
