- Genes related with Alzheimer's disease: A comparison of evolutionary search, statistical and integer programming approaches
- Three different methodologies have been applied to microarray data from brains of Alzheimer diagnosed patients and healthy patients taken as control. A clear pattern of differential gene expression results which can be regarded as a molecular signature of the disease. The results show the complementarity of the different methodologies, suggesting that a unified approach may help to uncover complex genetic risk factors not currently discovered with a single method. We also compare the set of genes in these differential patterns with those already reported in the literature.
