Sammanfattning : Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified thousands of loci associated with cardiac and cardiometabolic traits. However, the trait-associated variants usually do not clearly point to causal gene(s), mechanism(s) or tissue(s). Model systems that allow for a comprehensive and quick candidate gene screening are necessary, ideally in vivo. LÄS MER
2. Genetic predisposition for Multiple Myeloma. Identification and functional characterization of risk variants
Sammanfattning : Multiple myeloma (MM) is a blood malignancy originating from plasma cells. First-degree relatives of patients with MM have two- to four-fold higher risk of MM. However, the molecular basis remains largely unknown. This Ph. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis presents several investigations of the dog as a model for complex diseases, focusing on cancers and the effect of genetic risk factors on clinical presentation.In Papers I and II, we performed genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to identify germline risk factors predisposing US golden retrievers to hemangiosarcoma (HSA) and B-cell lymphoma (BLSA).

4. Genetic linkage and association studies in celiac disease: discoveries from whole genome analysis
Sammanfattning : Celiac Disease (CD) or Gluten Sensitive Enteropathy (GSE) is a life-long disorder. It is characterized by inflammation in the small intestine of genetically predisposed individuals caused by inappropriate immune response to gluten, a protein enriched in some of our common grains (wheat, rye and barley). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Genome wide association studies (GWAS) have identified thousands of loci associated to an immense number of traits and diseases. Most associations have been to common variants, but rare variant associations are progressively being reported. LÄS MER
