Project description

This project aims to develop powerful statistical methods for detecting gene-gene interactions, in particular (1) a general strategy for minimizing the risk of Type I en II errors in genomewide detection of gene-gene interactions, and (2) specific statistical tests for gene-gene interaction based on microarray data and family-based designs.
