Virology Seminar - Speaker: Scott Hensley - 209 Johnson Pavilion
Abstract: Rare variants have increasingly been cited as major contributors in the disease etiology of several complex disorders. Recently, several approaches have been proposed for analyzing the association of rare variants with disease. These approaches include collapsing rare variants, summing rare variant test statistics within a particular locus to improve power, and selecting a subset of rare variants for association testing. In this talk, I will review existing approaches and propose an alternate approach to selecting the best subset of variants to include in the model that is based on the linkage disequilibrium pattern among the rare variants. Power and type 1 errors associated with different methods will be presented.
