    • Common genetic variation and the control of HIV-1 in humans. 

      Fellay, Jacques; Ge, Dongliang; Shianna, Kevin V; Colombo, Sara; Ledergerber, Bruno; Cirulli, Elizabeth T; Urban, Thomas J; ... (38 authors) (PLoS Genet, 2009-12)
      To extend the understanding of host genetic determinants of HIV-1 control, we performed a genome-wide association study in a cohort of 2,554 infected Caucasian subjects. The study was powered to detect common genetic variants ...
    • Genome-wide mRNA expression correlates of viral control in CD4+ T-cells from HIV-1-infected individuals. 

      Rotger, Margalida; Dang, Kristen K; Fellay, Jacques; Heinzen, Erin L; Feng, Sheng; Descombes, Patrick; Shianna, Kevin V; ... (13 authors) (PLoS Pathog, 2010-02-26)
      There is great interindividual variability in HIV-1 viral setpoint after seroconversion, some of which is known to be due to genetic differences among infected individuals. Here, our focus is on determining, genome-wide, ...
    • Host determinants of HIV-1 control in African Americans. 

      Pelak, Kimberly; Goldstein, David B; Walley, Nicole M; Fellay, Jacques; Ge, Dongliang; Shianna, Kevin V; Gumbs, Curtis; ... (16 authors) (J Infect Dis, 2010-04-15)
      We performed a whole-genome association study of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) set point among a cohort of African Americans (n = 515), and an intronic single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the HLA-B gene ...
    • Screening the human exome: a comparison of whole genome and whole transcriptome sequencing. 

      Cirulli, Elizabeth T; Singh, Abanish; Shianna, Kevin V; Ge, Dongliang; Smith, Jason P; Maia, Jessica M; Heinzen, Erin L; ... (10 authors) (Genome Biol, 2010)
      BACKGROUND: There is considerable interest in the development of methods to efficiently identify all coding variants present in large sample sets of humans. There are three approaches possible: whole-genome sequencing, ...
    • The characterization of twenty sequenced human genomes. 

      Pelak, Kimberly; Shianna, Kevin V; Ge, Dongliang; Maia, Jessica M; Zhu, Mingfu; Smith, Jason P; Cirulli, Elizabeth T; ... (25 authors) (PLoS Genet, 2010-09-09)
      We present the analysis of twenty human genomes to evaluate the prospects for identifying rare functional variants that contribute to a phenotype of interest. We sequenced at high coverage ten "case" genomes from individuals ...
    • Tissue-specific genetic control of splicing: implications for the study of complex traits. 

      Heinzen, Erin L; Ge, Dongliang; Cronin, Kenneth D; Maia, Jessica M; Shianna, Kevin V; Gabriel, Willow N; Welsh-Bohmer, Kathleen A; ... (10 authors) (PLoS Biol, 2008-12-23)
      Numerous genome-wide screens for polymorphisms that influence gene expression have provided key insights into the genetic control of transcription. Despite this work, the relevance of specific polymorphisms to in vivo expression ...
    • Whole-Genome Sequencing of a Single Proband Together with Linkage Analysis Identifies a Mendelian Disease Gene 

      Sobreira, Nara LM; Cirulli, Elizabeth T; Avramopoulos, Dimitrios; Wohler, Elizabeth; Oswald, Gretchen L; Stevens, Eric L; Ge, Dongliang; ... (16 authors) (PLoS Genetics, 2010-06-17)
