- Investigation of gene-by-sex interactions for lipid traits in diverse populations from the population architecture using genomics and epidemiology studyKira C Taylor
Department of Epidemiology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC, USA
BMC Genet 14:33. 2013..Here, we investigated whether GWAS-identified SNPs for lipid traits exhibited heterogeneity by sex in the Population Architecture using Genomics and Epidemiology (PAGE) study...
- Low-fat dietary pattern and change in body-composition traits in the Women's Health Initiative Dietary Modification TrialCara L Carty
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA, USA
Am J Clin Nutr 93:516-24. 2011..The Women's Health Initiative Dietary Modification (DM) Trial was a randomized controlled trial that compared the effects of a low-fat (≤20% of total energy) or a usual diet in relation to chronic disease risk in postmenopausal women...
- A novel variational Bayes multiple locus Z-statistic for genome-wide association studies with Bayesian model averagingBenjamin A Logsdon
Division of Public Health Sciences, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, 98109, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
Bioinformatics 28:1738-44. 2012....
- Genome-wide association study of body height in African Americans: the Women's Health Initiative SNP Health Association Resource (SHARe)Cara L Carty
Public Health Sciences Division, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA 98109, USA
Hum Mol Genet 21:711-20. 2012..Specifically, we identify new loci that may reflect population-specific regulation of height and report several known height loci that are important in determining height in African-descent populations...
- Replication of breast cancer GWAS susceptibility loci in the Women's Health Initiative African American SHARe StudyCarolyn M Hutter
Division of Public Health Sciences, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, 1100 Fairview Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109, USA
Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev 20:1950-9. 2011..These studies have primarily been conducted in populations of European descent. To fully understand the impact of these loci, it is important to study groups with other genetic ancestries, including African American women...
