• #### Combining Effects from Rare and Common Genetic Variants in an Exome-Wide Association Study of Sequence Data ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2011)
Recent breakthroughs in next-generation sequencing technologies allow cost-effective methods for measuring a growing list of cellular properties, including DNA sequence and structural variation. Next-generation sequencing ...
• #### A Comprehensive Analysis of In Vitro and In Vivo Genetic Fitness of Pseudomonas aeruginosa Using High-Throughput Sequencing of Transposon Libraries ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2013)
High-throughput sequencing of transposon (Tn) libraries created within entire genomes identifies and quantifies the contribution of individual genes and operons to the fitness of organisms in different environments. We ...
• #### Exploring Genome-Wide – Dietary Heme Iron Intake Interactions and the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes ﻿

(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2013)
Aims/hypothesis: Genome-wide association studies have identified over 50 new genetic loci for type 2 diabetes (T2D). Several studies conclude that higher dietary heme iron intake increases the risk of T2D. Therefore we ...
• #### Genome-wide association analysis identifies TXNRD2, ATXN2 and FOXC1 as susceptibility loci for primary open angle glaucoma ﻿

(2015)
Primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) is a leading cause of blindness world-wide. To identify new susceptibility loci, we meta-analyzed GWAS results from 8 independent studies from the United States (3,853 cases and 33,480 ...
• #### Genome-Wide Joint Meta-Analysis of SNP and SNP-by-Smoking Interaction Identifies Novel Loci for Pulmonary Function ﻿

(Public Library of Science, 2012)
Genome-wide association studies have identified numerous genetic loci for spirometic measures of pulmonary function, forced expiratory volume in one second $(FEV_1)$, and its ratio to forced vital capacity $(FEV_1/FVC)$. ...
• #### Genomewide meta‐analysis identifies loci associated with IGF‐I and IGFBP‐3 levels with impact on age‐related traits ﻿

(John Wiley and Sons Inc., 2016)
Summary The growth hormone/insulin‐like growth factor (IGF) axis can be manipulated in animal models to promote longevity, and IGF‐related proteins including IGF‐I and IGF‐binding protein‐3 (IGFBP‐3) have also been implicated ...
• #### Leveraging local ancestry to detect gene-gene interactions in genome-wide data ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2015)
Background: Although genome-wide association studies have successfully identified thousands of variants associated to complex traits, these variants only explain a small amount of the entire heritability of the trait. ...
• #### A perspective on interaction effects in genetic association studies ﻿

(John Wiley and Sons Inc., 2016)
ABSTRACT The identification of gene–gene and gene–environment interaction in human traits and diseases is an active area of research that generates high expectation, and most often lead to high disappointment. This is ...
• #### Transcriptional Response of Mucoid Pseudomonas aeruginosa to Human Respiratory Mucus ﻿

(American Society of Microbiology, 2012)
Adaptation of bacterial pathogens to a host can lead to the selection and accumulation of specific mutations in their genomes with profound effects on the overall physiology and virulence of the organisms. The opportunistic ...
