[…] including statistical methods (e.g. atom ), search methods (e.g. beam or snpharvester ), regression methods (e.g. lasso penalized logistic regression ) and machine learning methods (e.g. , megasnphunter or decision tree based methods ). classic methods such as logistic regression have been pointed as appropriate methods to consistently estimate the strength of association […]

[…] in the ccdc6 and kit genes respectively, was detected by mdr, snpharvester and mb-mdr (). however, this interaction was not replicated in series ii and iii (p = 0.13)., sh- snpharvester; msh- megasnphunter; light grey shading indicates interactions selected by each of the algorithms; dark grey shading indicates the interaction fulfilling the established cutoff (snp pair selected […]

[…] trees, where each node represents a snp, and each path in the trees indicates possible snp interactions. ranking all snps according to their importance for a disease-control classification process, megasnphunter determines significant interactions along paths in the corresponding trees that involved such high ranked snps using h-statistics (wan et al., )., a final group of methods uses […]

[…] that was subsequently validated, and yang et al. () describe their results to be consistent with the original publications., wan et al. () describe the development of a novel approach called megasnphunter and applied it to parkinson’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. again, they identified novel interactions that warrant independent validation. finally, a bayesian network approach […]
