    • Association between XPF polymorphisms and cancer risk: a meta-analysis. 

      Wei, Qingyi; Shi, Ting-Yan; He, Jing; Qiu, Li-Xin; Zhu, Mei-Ling; Wang, Meng-Yun; Zhou, Xiao-Yan; ... (10 authors) (PloS one, 2012-01)
      BACKGROUND: Xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group F (XPF or ERCC4) plays a key role in DNA repair that protects against genetic instability and carcinogenesis. A series of epidemiological studies have examined associations ...
    • Genetic variants in RORA and DNMT1 associated with cutaneous melanoma survival. 

      Wei, Qingyi; Li, Bo; Wang, Yanru; Xu, Yinghui; Liu, Hongliang; Bloomer, Wendy; Zhu, Dakai; ... (12 authors) (International journal of cancer, 2018-06)
      Cutaneous melanoma (CM) is considered as a steroid hormone-related malignancy. However, few studies have evaluated the roles of genetic variants encoding steroid hormone receptor genes and their related regulators (SHR-related ...
    • Genetic variants in the metzincin metallopeptidase family genes predict melanoma survival. 

      Hyslop, Terry; Wei, Qingyi; Xu, Yinghui; Wang, Yanru; Liu, Hongliang; Shi, Qiong; Zhu, Dakai; ... (12 authors) (Molecular carcinogenesis, 2018-01)
      Metzincins are key molecules in the degradation of the extracellular matrix and play an important role in cellular processes such as cell migration, adhesion, and cell fusion of malignant tumors, including cutaneous melanoma ...
    • Genome-wide association study identifies a new melanoma susceptibility locus at 1q21.3. 

      Wei, Qingyi; Macgregor, Stuart; Montgomery, Grant W; Liu, Jimmy Z; Zhao, Zhen Zhen; Henders, Anjali K; Stark, Mitchell; ... (52 authors) (Nature genetics, 2011-10-09)
      We performed a genome-wide association study of melanoma in a discovery cohort of 2,168 Australian individuals with melanoma and 4,387 control individuals. In this discovery phase, we confirm several previously characterized ...
    • Genome-wide association study identifies three new melanoma susceptibility loci. 

      Wei, Qingyi; Barrett, Jennifer H; Iles, Mark M; Harland, Mark; Taylor, John C; Aitken, Joanne F; Andresen, Per Arne; ... (75 authors) (Nature genetics, 2011-10-09)
      We report a genome-wide association study for melanoma that was conducted by the GenoMEL Consortium. Our discovery phase included 2,981 individuals with melanoma and 1,982 study-specific control individuals of European ancestry, ...
    • Inverse Relationship between Vitiligo-Related Genes and Skin Cancer Risk. 

      Wei, Qingyi; Wu, Wenting; Amos, Christopher I; Lee, Jeffrey E; Sarin, Kavita Y; Han, Jiali (The Journal of investigative dermatology, 2018-09)
    • Joint effect of multiple common SNPs predicts melanoma susceptibility. 

      Wei, Qingyi; Fang, Shenying; Han, Jiali; Zhang, Mingfeng; Wang, Li-e; Amos, Christopher I; Lee, Jeffrey E (PloS one, 2013-01)
      Single genetic variants discovered so far have been only weakly associated with melanoma. This study aims to use multiple single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) jointly to obtain a larger genetic effect and to improve the ...
