Identification of genetic variants contributing to the migraine phenotype in different Australian populations

Rodriguez Acevedo, Astrid Jannet (2015) Identification of genetic variants contributing to the migraine phenotype in different Australian populations. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This project aimed to identify novel genetic risk variants associated with migraine in the Norfolk Island population. Statistical analysis and bioinformatics approaches such as polygenic modeling and gene clustering methods were carried out to explore genotypic and expression data from high-throughput techniques. This project had a particular focus on hormonal genes and other genetic variants and identified a modest effect size on the migraine phenotype.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
