[…] r statistical software (version 3.1.1). a bonferroni correction was used to adjust for multiple testing, and the significance was set at p < 0.005 (0.05/10). the sample size was calculated using gwapower software [41]. the current sample size (n = 178) had 80 % power to detect a variant with about 6 % heritability. since only 90 samples were assessed for igg subclasses, the power to detect […]
