Investigating genetic susceptibility to rheumatic heart disease in Oceania
This case-control study investigated susceptibility to rheumatic heart disease in over 3,000 individuals recruited across eight Oceanian countries. Cases were patients with rheumatic heart disease and controls were members of the general population. In addition to the Illumina HumanCore-24 BeadChip genotyping, a subset of 128 samples were analysed using the higher density Illumina HumanOmniExpressExome BeadChip of which 64 were also analysed using low coverage sequencing with the Illumina HiSeq 4000 platform.
