GenoKey mining the data for neuroblastoma risk genotypes

Genome-wide association studies generate huge quantities of genetic data, and it’s not always easy to find the critical linkages to disease amongst the volume of information. Using GenoKey’s data mining technology, Erling Mellerup and a team of European researchers have found a cluster of 24 combinations of genotypes that are

Working with case-control data – GenoKey’s combinatorial data mining platform

Case-control data is important for longitudinal studies, but the huge sets of complex data can make analysis difficult. GenoKey’s combinatorial data mining algorithms, run on standard computer hardware, can cut through the complexity in minutes, finding correlations with a speed and accuracy unmatched by other tools currently available. Case-control studies

An interview with Erling Mellerup: The importance of combinatorial analysis

Many diseases, such as cancers, are caused by complex interactions of genetic changes and biological and lifestyle factors. However, a lot of research projects, despite analysis of thousands of genetic changes, only focus on single locus  strategies in the statistical analysis of the results, which may tell just part of

GWAS, data mining and bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder tends to run in families, but its genetics aren’t clear cut. The answer to the puzzle is unlikely to be a single gene; rather a mix of a number of different mutations, with environmental influences too. To try to solve the genetic puzzle, a group of Danish and
