Abstract

We use the Genetic Analysis Workshop 14 simulated data to explore the effectiveness of a two-stage strategy for mapping complex disease loci consisting of an initial genome scan with confidence interval construction for gene location, followed by fine mapping with family-based tests of association on a dense set of single-nucleotide polymorphisms. We considered four types of intervals: the 1-LOD interval, a basic percentile bootstrap confidence interval based on the position of the maximum Zlr score, and asymptotic and bootstrap confidence intervals based on a generalized estimating equations method. For fine mapping we considered two family-based tests of association: a test based on a likelihood ratio statistic and a transmission-disequilibrium-type test implemented in the software FBAT. In two of the simulation replicates, we found that the bootstrap confidence intervals based on the peak Zlr and the 1-LOD support interval always contained the true disease loci and that the likelihood ratio test provided further strong confirmatory evidence of the presence of disease loci in these regions.
