Methods of Statistical Analysis of DNA Sequence Data for Studies Relating Variation to Disease (R01)
Department of Health and Human Services
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will encourage the development of novel methods of statistical analysis of DNA sequence data in studies that aim to relate genetic variation to disease. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, designing sequencing studies and statistical methods for relating the variation to phenotype; assessing the significance of the associations; incorporating population genetic factors such as population history, admixture, and natural selection; and finding sets of variants that may include functional variants.
