    We present a Bayesian method that combines linkage and linkage disequilibrium (LDL) information for quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping. This method uses jointly all marker information (haplotypes) and all available pedigree information; i.e., it is not restricted to any specific experimental...

    We propose a new method for simultaneously detecting linkage disequilibrium and genetic structure in subdivided populations. Taking subpopulation structure into account with a hierarchical model, we estimate the magnitude of genetic differentiation and linkage disequilibrium in a metapopulation...

    The primary goal of genome-wide association studies is to determine which genetic markers are associated with genetic traits, most commonly human diseases. As a result of the "large p, small n" nature of genome-wide association study data sets, and especially because of the collinearity due to...

    Background: It has been shown that if genetic relationships among individuals are not taken into account for genome wide association studies, this may lead to false positives. To address this problem, we used Genome-wide Rapid Association using Mixed Model and Regression and principal component...
