SNP, microsatellite, asthma, atopy

Descrizione: We have collaborated to Whole Genome studies data analysis,and to the training program. We compared whole genome SNP genotyping
with microsatellite genotyping in the same cohort, compared with the same analysis data obtained in two other populations, collaborated to
the analysis of gene-gene interactions and LD block associations in the larger data set from the total project, collaborated to meta-analysis of
genome-wide linkage studies in asthma and atopy (Bouzigon E et al, Eur J Hum Genet 2010; 18:700)
