- Additional Information:
- Our data analysis from the POSNA grant was hindered by our inability to apply ancestral informative markers (AIM's) to our results and thus we had no confidence in our findings. Learning from that experience (and, frankly, thanks to newer and cheaper technologies) we are now applying AIM's to our latest work....and will know in a few weeks if we have overcome our earlier problems.
