    • Genome-wide association study identifies a new melanoma susceptibility locus at 1q21.3. 

      Macgregor, Stuart; Montgomery, Grant W; Liu, Jimmy Z; Zhao, Zhen Zhen; Henders, Anjali K; Stark, Mitchell; Schmid, Helen; ... (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 ...
    • Joint effect of multiple common SNPs predicts melanoma susceptibility. 

      Fang, Shenying; Han, Jiali; Zhang, Mingfeng; Wang, Li-e; Wei, Qingyi; 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 ...
