  1. 1. Genetics of complex disease

    Author : Viktor Henmyr; Molekylär cellbiologi; []
    Keywords : complex disease; allergic rhinitis; Chronic rhinosinusitis; genetics; associations; GWAS; resequencing;

    Abstract : To find true genetic associations in complex diseases, such as allergic rhinitis and chronic rhinosinusitis, is a difficult task. Both are polygenetic diseases where it is believed that genetic variation in several genes make up their phenotypes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Complex disease genetics : Utilising targeted sequencing and homogeneous ancestry

    Author : Argyri Mathioudaki; Kerstin Lindblad-Toh; Panagiotis Deloukas; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ankylosing spondylitis; breast cancer; targeted sequencing; Sweden; genetics; population stratification.; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : The complex disease investigations presented in this thesis aimed to provide new information regarding underlying genetics by using targeted sequencing and ethnically homogeneous cohorts. This work moved past current methodologies and addressed data stratification issues, that might have been hindering new findings.

    Abstract : Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) is a heterogonous inflammatory arthritis associated with psoriasis. The disease leads to inflammation of peripheral joints, axial skeleton and/or enthesites, and can result in severe destruction of affected joints. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genomic strategies towards the dissection of human complex disease

    Author : Tesfai Emahazion; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Mapping; complex disease; polymorphism; SNP; association analysis; Alzheimer s disease; oxidative phosphorylation; apoptosis; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Medical Genetics; medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : Complex diseases are caused by the activities of many genes acting in concert with environmental factors. A major challenge facing human genetic research is to unravel the genetic factors behind complex disorders. READ MORE

  5. 5. Geospatial Knowledge Discovery using Volunteered Geographic Information : a Complex System Perspective
