- Association analysis of 9,560 prostate cancer cases from the International Consortium of Prostate Cancer Genetics confirms the role of reported prostate cancer associated SNPs for familial diseaseCraig C Teerlink
Division of Genetic Epidemiology, Department of Medicine, University of Utah School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, UT, USA
Hum Genet 133:347-56. 2014..The results indicate that the majority of common, low-risk alleles identified in GWAS studies for all prostate cancer also contribute risk for familial prostate cancer, and that some may contribute risk to aggressive disease. ..

- Significant evidence for linkage to chromosome 5q13 in a genome-wide scan for asthma in an extended pedigree resourceCraig C Teerlink
Department of Biomedical Informatics, Division of Genetic Epidemiology, University of Utah School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, UT 84112 5750, USA
Eur J Hum Genet 17:636-43. 2009..The evidence of linkage at the 5q13 region represents the first significant evidence for linkage on a genome-wide basis for this locus. Linked pedigrees localize the region to approximately between 92.3-105.5 Mb...
