Finding associations in dense genetic maps: a genetic algorithm approach.
Large-scale association studies hold promise for discovering the genetic basis of common human disease. These studies will consist of a large number of individuals, as well as large number of genetic markers, such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). The potential size of the data and the resulting model space require the development of efficient methodology to unravel associations between phenotypes and SNPs in dense genetic maps. Our approach uses a genetic algorithm (GA) to construct...Expand abstract
