    BMC Genet 11:49. 2010
    ..One such approach is the Random Forests (RF) algorithm. The use of RF for SNP discovery related to human disease has grown in recent years; however, most work has focused on small datasets or simulation studies which are limited...
  2. pmc Variation within DNA repair pathway genes and risk of multiple sclerosis
    Farren B S Briggs
    University of California, Berkeley, 94720, USA
    Am J Epidemiol 172:217-24. 2010
    ..Although other candidate genes examined here warrant further follow-up studies, collectively, these results derived from a well-powered study do not support a strong role for common variation within DNA repair pathway genes in MS...

    ..Further investigation of racial differences in BRCA1/2 mutation epidemiology could inform targeted cancer risk-reduction strategies...

    Kiran K Khush
    Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, CA, USA
    Circ Heart Fail 6:300-9. 2013
    ..We sought to identify donor predictors of allograft nonuse, and to determine whether these predictors are in fact associated with adverse recipient post-transplant outcomes...
