    1. We provide revised estimates of the effective number of markers from the HapMap Phase 3 genotype data and the 1000 Genomes phase1 version 3 sequence data. We found that the default setting for the maximum value of the order of the fitted autoregressive model was too low to fully account for long-range LD. We empirically determined that the maximum value of the order needed to be increased to 300. View a revised version of Table 4  and Table 5 .

    1. SCARVAsnp is a C language program developed to detect rare variance within a given region. Briefly, it is implemented in four stages. First, all common variants in a pre-specified region (e.g., gene) are evaluated individually. Second, a union procedure is used to combine all rare variants (RVs) in the index region, and the ratio of the log likelihood with one RV excluded to the log likelihood of a model with all the collapsed RVs is calculated. On the basis of previously-reported simulation studies, a likelihood ratio ≥ 1.3 is considered statistically significant. Third, the direction of the association of the removed RV is determined by evaluating the change in λ values with the inclusion and exclusion of that RV. Lastly, significant common and rare variants, along with covariates, are included in a final regression model to evaluate the association between the trait and variants in that region. The program executable and readme and sample files are available here.

    1. SCARVAsnp is a C language program developed to detect rare variance within a given region. Briefly, it is implemented in four stages. First, all common variants in a pre-specified region (e.g., gene) are evaluated individually. Second, a union procedure is used to combine all rare variants (RVs) in the index region, and the ratio of the log likelihood with one RV excluded to the log likelihood of a model with all the collapsed RVs is calculated. On the basis of previously-reported simulation studies, a likelihood ratio ≥ 1.3 is considered statistically significant. Third, the direction of the association of the removed RV is determined by evaluating the change in λ values with the inclusion and exclusion of that RV. Lastly, significant common and rare variants, along with covariates, are included in a final regression model to evaluate the association between the trait and variants in that region.

    1. We developed a novel local replication analysis to identify variants significantly associated with fasting plasma glucose that were not directly replicated. First, a linkage disequilibrium (LD) block containing a query SNP was defined with bounds determined by the SNPs most distant to the query SNP with r2 ≥ 0.3 using the HapMap CEU LD data. Second, we estimated the covariance matrix for the block of SNPs using the HUFS genotype data. Third, the covariance matrix was spectrally decomposed and the effective degrees of freedom, Neff, were estimated using the relationship  in which in which λk is the kth eigenvalue of the K×K covariance matrix for the K SNPs, assuming that the number of individuals exceeded the number of SNPs (Bretherton et al., 1999). Fourth, to control for multiple comparisons, the nominal significance threshold α = 0.05 was divided by Neff. A function authored by Daniel Shriner, Ph.D.(CRGGH) for the R environment used to perform this analysis is available.

    1. We developed panels for admixture mapping in African Americans from experimentally determined genotypes using the Affymetrix Genome-Wide Human SNP Array 6.0. The panels are conditional on linkage equilibrium over 1 Mb bins. Our iterative pruning procedure was designed to avoid gaps in coverage and to eliminate background linkage disequilibrium. One panel is based on δ values  and other is based on Fst values  between CEU and YRI HapMap samples. Given the mathematical relationship between δ and Fst, we recommend both panels of AIMs equally.
