[…] association test, and three genetic models (additive, dominant and recessive) were assumed for each snp analysis.25 to assess the effect of genetic variants on the trait value, a univariate family-based association test was performed for each allele. this test provides a z-statistic with its corresponding p-value. in the present study, a positive z-statistic for an allele or a haplotype […]

[…] unaffected’ analyses). family-based association testing of allele transmission from parents to only affected offsprings was also performed (i.e., ‘affecteds only’ analyses). the hbat procedure in fbat was used to estimate haplotype frequencies and perform haplotype-specific and global tests of association. p-values <8.33×10−3 (0.05/6) were considered statistically significant., a total […]

[…] of ld were analysed in haploview 4.2 [30]. as confirmation, association analyses were also undertaken using a conventional transmission disequilibrium test in the family-based association test (fbat) [31]., following quality control checks (see methods), illumina 660w quad beadchip genome-wide data was available for 535,544 genotyped snps (2,524,817 after imputation) in 416 om cases […]

[…] bonferroni correction., the association analyses of the nine interesting snps (see details in the results section) in the fhs sample were performed in the similar way as for the aa sample, using the fbat program to examine association of the snps with smoking status (29)., we performed genome-wide genotypic association analyses for smoking status (adjusted for age and sex) and identified […]

[…] were performed assuming additive, dominant, and recessive genetic models. in both cohorts, snps and haplotypes were tested for association with asthma and allergy-related phenotypes using the family-based association test statistic implemented in pbat version v3.2 [22]. consistent with our previous work, all analyses of quantitative phenotypes were adjusted for age and gender. results […]
