<p>Abstract</p> <p>Determining the most promising single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) presents a challenge in genome-wide association studies, when hundreds of thousands of association tests are conducted. The power to detect genetic effects is dependent on minor allele frequency (MAF), and genome-wide association studies SNP arrays include SNPs with a wide distribution of MAFs. Therefore, it is critical to understand MAF's effect on the false positive rate.</p> <p>Data from the Framingham Heart Study simulated data (Problem 3, with answers) was used to examine the effects of varying MAFs on the likelihood of false positives. Replication set 1 was used to gen...
