    iLOCi: a SNP interaction prioritization technique for detecting epistasis in genome-wide association studies

    Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) do not provide a full account of the heritability of genetic diseases since gene-gene interactions, also known as epistasis are not considered in single locus GWAS. To ad...

    Feasibility of using 454 pyrosequencing for studying quasispecies of the whole dengue viral genome

    Dengue is the world's most common mosquito-borne viral disease. Poor proofreading by RNA polymerase during its replication results in the accumulation of mutations in its genome. This leads to a diversity of g...
