Novel therapeutics for coronary artery disease from genome-wide association study data

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery disease (CAD), one of the leading causes of death globally, is influenced by both environmental and genetic risk factors. Gene-centric genome-wide association studies (GWAS) involving cases and controls have been …

Candidate disease gene prediction using Gentrepid: application to a genome-wide association study on coronary artery disease

Current single-locus-based analyses and candidate disease gene prediction methodologies used in genome-wide association studies (GWAS) do not capitalize on the wealth of the underlying genetic data, nor functional data available from molecular …
