  • rs2735383, located at a microRNA binding site in the 3'UTR of NBS1, is not associated with breast cancer risk 

    Liu, J; Lončar, I; Collée, JM; Bolla, MK; Dennis, J; Michailidou, K; Wang, Q et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-12)
    NBS1, also known as NBN, plays an important role in maintaining genomic stability. Interestingly, rs2735383 G > C, located in a microRNA binding site in the 3'-untranslated region (UTR) of NBS1, was shown to be associated ...
  • The Allelic Landscape of Human Blood Cell Trait Variation and Links to Common Complex Disease 

    Astle, WJ; Elding, H; Jiang, T; Allen, D; Ruklisa, D; Mann, AL; Mead, D et al. (Elsevier, 2016-11-17)
    Many common variants have been associated with hematological traits, but identification of causal genes and pathways has proven challenging. We performed a genome-wide association analysis in the UK Biobank and INTERVAL ...
  • SNP interaction pattern identifier (SIPI): an intensive search for SNP-SNP interaction patterns. 

    Lin, Hui-Yi; Chen, Dung-Tsa; Huang, Po-Yu; Liu, Yung-Hsin; Ochoa, Augusto; Zabaleta, Jovanny; Mercante, Donald E et al. (Oxford University Press, 2016-12-30)
    $\textbf{MOTIVATION}$: Testing SNP-SNP interactions is considered as a key for overcoming bottlenecks of genetic association studies. However, related statistical methods for testing SNP-SNP interactions are underdeveloped. ...
  • Concerns, perceived need and competing priorities: a qualitative exploration of decision-making and non-participation in a population-based flexible sigmoidoscopy screening programme to prevent colorectal cancer. 

    Hall, N; Birt, L; Rees, CJ; Walter, FM; Elliot, S; Ritchie, M; Weller, D et al. (BMJ Publishing Group, 2016-11-11)
    OBJECTIVE: Optimising uptake of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening is important to achieve projected health outcomes. Population-based screening by flexible sigmoidoscopy (FS) was introduced in England in 2013 (NHS Bowel ...
