Using multi-way admixture mapping to elucidate TB susceptibility in the South African Coloured population
(BioMed Central, 2014-11)
Background: The admixed South African Coloured population is ideally suited to the discovery of tuberculosis susceptibility genetic variants and their probable ethnic origins, but previous attempts at finding such variants ...
TLR1, 2, 4, 6 and 9 variants associated with tuberculosis susceptibility: a systematic review and meta-analysis
(PLoS ONE, 2015)
Background: Studies investigating the influence of toll-like receptor (TLR) polymorphisms and tuberculosis susceptibility have yielded varying and often contradictory results in different ethnic groups. A meta-analysis ...
A post-GWAS analysis of predicted regulatory variants and tuberculosis susceptibility
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
Utilizing data from published tuberculosis (TB) genome-wide association studies (GWAS), we use a bioinformatics pipeline to detect all polymorphisms in linkage disequilibrium (LD) with variants previously implicated in ...
