ABSTRACT
Within the past few years, the focus on cytokine single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) function and association with human diseases has increased considerably. This third supplement to the Cytokine Gene Polymorphism in Human Disease: On-line database describes the positive associations of cytokine SNPs in human diseases described in articles published from 2002 up to 2005. A file containing a list of all SNPs investigated in this period of time and their association with human disease or expression pattern can be downloaded from the internet address http://www.nanea.dk/cytokinesnps/. The web pages also contain other features and downloads that could be useful when planning cytokine SNP association studies.Genes and Immunity (2006) 7, 269–276. doi:10.1038/sj.gene.6364301; published online 27 April 2006

    A two-stage association study is the most commonly used method to efficiently identify disease susceptibility genes. However, some recent single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) studies recently utilized three-stage designs. The purpose of this study was to investigate the practical properties of...

    Background: The typical objective of Genome-wide association (GWA) studies is to identify single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and corresponding genes with the strongest evidence of association (the 'most-significant SNPs/genes' approach). Borrowing ideas from micro-array data analysis, we...
