Biostatistics Seminar - Dr Jinko Graham - A test drive of haplotype-informed ancestries for fine mapping complex genetic traits.

Tue, 2013-01-29 16:00 - 17:00

Abstract:

A basic tenet of statistical genetics is that shared ancestry underlies population associations between complex traits and genetic markers such as haplotypes. The coalescent is a popular mathematical model of the ancestral tree of copies of a genetic locus sampled from the population. While these ancestral trees cannot be observed directly, the observed haplotype data enable sampling from their posterior distribution. For each sampled tree, statistical tests of shared ancestry among extreme phenotypes may be applied to summarize the trait association.

Jose R. Zubizarreta - Designing an observational study to be less sensitive to unmeasured biases: effect of the 2010 Chilean earthquake on posttraumatic stress.

Purvis Hall : 1020 Pine Ave. West - Room 25

In 2010, a magnitude 8.8 earthquake hit Chile, devastating parts of the country.  Having just completed its national socioeconomic survey (CASEN), Chile interviewed a subsample of respondents, creating unusual longitudinal data about the same individuals before and after a major disaster.  The follow-up evaluated posttraumatic stress symptoms (PTSS) using Davidson’s Trauma Scale.  We use these data with two goals in mind.  Most studies of PTSS following disasters rely on recall to characterize the state of affairs prior to the disaster.  In contrast, we use the CASE
