Project description
The project aims to combine large-scale molecular databases and develop statistical models for the assessment of pathways linking molecular information to phenotype expressions such as hypertension. The resulting models are applied to data from monozygotics twins of the SAWES-study and families of the Calex-study, and simulation studies are used to investigate model properties. The project is carried out in the Gerontology Research Centre, University of Jyväskylä. Project results are expected to provide statistical tools that may ultimately assist in finding personalized forms of medication and treatments.
