A roadmap to multifactor dimensionality reduction methods

Brief Bioinform
PMCID: 4793893
PMID: 26108231
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbv038

[…] a limited extent by selecting a single matched pair from each family. To profit from extended informative pedigrees, MDR was merged with the genotype pedigree disequilibrium test (PDT) [] to form the MDR-PDT []. The genotype-PDT statistic is calculated for each multifactor cell and compared with a threshold, e.g. 0, for all possible d-factor combinations. If the test statistic is greater than this […]


Catecholaminergic Gene Variants: Contribution in ADHD and Associated Comorbid Attributes in the Eastern Indian Probands

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 3791561
PMID: 24163823

[…] ll hypothesis of no association. For the family-based data, we have analyzed only the trio families by MDR phenomics version 1.0 []. In absence of any phenotype, the MDR-pedigree disequilibrium test (MDR-PDT) was used for analysis []; the missing genotype was coded as “3” in the input file. Statistical significance was calculated after a 1000-fold permutation test. P values for each statistic were […]


Efficient techniques for genotype‐phenotype correlational analysis

BMC Med Inform Decis Mak
PMCID: 3686582
PMID: 23557276
DOI: 10.1186/1472-6947-13-41

[…] or attribute. The method to create a new attribute or variable changes the representation space of the original data. The details of the MDR algorithm can be found in [,,]. Authors in [] develop the MDR‐PDT algorithm by merging the MDR method with the genotype‐Pedigree Disequilibrium Test (geno‐PDT). Unlike ordinary MDR, it can identify single‐locus effects or joint effects of multiple loci in fa […]


Gene Gene Interaction and Functional Impact of Polymorphisms on Innate Immune Genes in Controlling Plasmodium falciparum Blood Infection Level

PLoS One
PMCID: 3470565
PMID: 23071570
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0046441

[…] itchie, et al. is a computational strategy to detect and characterize gene-gene interactions that may be associated with disease susceptibility . So far, MDR and its extensions such as GMDR, FAM-MDR, MDR-PDT, EMDR – have identified many interacting genetic variants underlying a wide variety of complex human diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, asthma, atrial fibrillation, autism, bladder cancer, […]


Overcoming Multidrug Resistance via Photodestruction of ABCG2 Rich Extracellular Vesicles Sequestering Photosensitive Chemotherapeutics

PLoS One
PMCID: 3329466
PMID: 22530032
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0035487

[…] were non-illuminated. Moreover, cytotoxicity studies revealed that MDR MCF-7/MR cells became highly sensitive to the cytotoxic effect exerted by IAs upon illumination, hence resulting in reversal of MDR.PDT acts directly on tumor cells typically via occlusion of the vasculature that nourishes the tumor . Treatment selectivity is based on the accumulation of higher photosensitizer levels within th […]


Genome Wide Association Scan of South Korean Autism Spectrum Disorders with Language Delay: A Preliminary Study

PMCID: 3079188
PMID: 21519539
DOI: 10.4306/pi.2011.8.1.61

[…] We determined the Mendelian inheritance error and tested the family-based association for each individual polymorphism using the standard TDT method. In addition, we used MDR-PDT to detect epistasis on a genome-wide scale with 194 markers that had a p-value of <10-3 in the TDT test. The false-discovery rate (FDR) is a method that considers the expected proportion of si […]
