    • Automated Validation Of Genetic Variants From Large Databases: Ensuring That Variant References Refer To The Same Genomic Locations 

      Tong, Mark Y.; Cassa, Christopher Anthony; Kohane, Isaac Samuel (Oxford University Press, 2011)
      Accurate annotations of genomic variants are necessary to achieve full-genome clinical interpretations that are scientifically sound and medically relevant. Many disease associations, especially those reported before the ...
    • Dominance of Deleterious Alleles Controls the Response to a Population Bottleneck 

      Balick, Daniel J.; Do, Ron; Cassa, Christopher A.; Reich, David; Sunyaev, Shamil R. (Public Library of Science, 2015)
      Population bottlenecks followed by re-expansions have been common throughout history of many populations. The response of alleles under selection to such demographic perturbations has been a subject of great interest in ...

      Background: There is tremendous potential for genome sequencing to improve clinical diagnosis and care once it becomes routinely accessible, but this will require formalizing research methods into clinical best practices ...
    • My Sister's Keeper?: Genomic Research and the Identifiability of Siblings 

      Cassa, Christopher Anthony; Schmidt, Brian; Kohane, Isaac Samuel; Mandl, Kenneth David (BioMed Central, 2008)
      Background: Genomic sequencing of SNPs is increasingly prevalent, though the amount of familial information these data contain has not been quantified. Methods: We provide a framework for measuring the risk to siblings of ...
