    Background: Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are a widely used study design for detecting genetic causes of complex diseases. Current studies provide good coverage of common causal SNPs, but not rare ones. A popular method to detect rare causal variants is haplotype testing. A disadvantage...

    Heart failure research suggests that multiple biomarkers could be combined with relevant clinical information to more accurately quantify individual risk and guide patient-specific treatment strategies. Therefore, statistical methodology is required to determine multi-marker risk scores that...
