Genome-wide mRNA expression correlates of viral control in CD4+ T-cells from HIV-1-infected individuals.
(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, ...
Screening the human exome: a comparison of whole genome and whole transcriptome sequencing.
(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, ...
Genome-wide scan of copy number variation in late-onset Alzheimer's disease.
(J Alzheimers Dis, 2010)
Alzheimer's disease is a complex and progressive neurodegenerative disease leading to loss of memory, cognitive impairment, and ultimately death. To date, six large-scale genome-wide association studies have been conducted ...
The characterization of twenty sequenced human genomes.
(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 ...
Host determinants of HIV-1 control in African Americans.
(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 ...
Rare variants create synthetic genome-wide associations.
(PLoS Biol, 2010-01-26)
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have now identified at least 2,000 common variants that appear associated with common diseases or related traits (http://www.genome.gov/gwastudies), hundreds of which have been convincingly ...
