Performance gains in genome-wide association studies for longitudinal traits via modeling time-varied effects

On September 27th, 2017 Zuxi (Terry) Cui presented a paper on “Performance gains in genome-wide association studies for longitudinal traits via modeling time-varied effects”.  We discussed the authors statistical methods, but also had a lengthy discussion about why there are not more genetic studies that include longitudinal traits, and how we might increase these studies in our own research.
