New Statistical Methods for Family-Based Sequencing Studies (18w5154)

Banff International Research Station (BIRS), The Banff Centre, Corbett Hall, 107 Tunnel Mountain Drive
Banff, AB T1L 1H5 Canada

The advent of high-throughput DNA sequencing has opened the possibility of detecting rare genetic variants that may be involved in complex diseases. To establish involvement of rare variants in complex traits, family samples are better suited than samples of unrelated subjects because, in a family, multiple affected members are more likely than unrelated affected individuals to carry the same rare variant from the basic principles of inheritance. A common need in these settings is to account for various forms of…
