Congratulations to Dr. Derek Gordon for publishing the book Heterogeneity in Statistical Genetics: How to Assess, Address, and Account for Mixtures in Association Studies.


About this book:

In this book, we document methods that incorporate heterogeneity into the design and analysis of genetic and genomic association data. Among the key qualities of our developed statistics is that they include mixture parameters as part of the statistic, a unique component for tests of association. A critical feature of this work is the inclusion of at least one heterogeneity parameter when performing statistical power and sample size calculations for tests of genetic association.
