  1. Understanding the effect of human genetic variations on disease can provide insight into phenotype-genotype relationships, and has great potential for improving the effectiveness of personalized medicine. Whil...

    Authors: Ann G. Cirincione, Kaylyn L. Clark and Maricel G. Kann
    Citation: BMC Medical Genomics 2018 11(Suppl 3):75
  2. High levels of triglycerides (TG ≥200 mg/dL) are an emerging risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Conversely, very low levels of TG are associated with decreased risk for cardiovascular disease. Precision m...

    Authors: Dana C. Crawford, Nicole A. Restrepo, Kirsten E. Diggins, Eric Farber-Eger and Quinn S. Wells
    Citation: BMC Medical Genomics 2018 11(Suppl 3):66
  3. Large-scale collaborative precision medicine initiatives (e.g., The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA)) are yielding rich multi-omics data. Integrative analyses of the resulting multi-omics data, such as somatic mutat...

    Citation: BMC Medical Genomics 2018 11(Suppl 3):71
  4. Integrative analysis on multi-omics data has gained much attention recently. To investigate the interactive effect of gene expression and DNA methylation on cancer, we propose a directed random walk-based appr...

    Citation: BMC Medical Genomics 2018 11(Suppl 3):68
  5. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases that causes problems related to brain function. To some extent it is understood on a molecular level how AD arises, however there a...
