Development of detection and feature selection methods for small copy number variations in non-oncology studies
Term: 10/2009 - 12/2010
In this project summarization and copy number call methods for Affymetrix Gemome-Wide SNP and CNV arrays are developed with respect to reduce the false discovery rate. These methods extent our FARMS algorithm that is succefully applied to transcriptomics to the field of genetics. Goal is to detect and associate small copy number variations with complex diseases like multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer.
