This is a case-control study on Breast Cancer (BC) which aims to find genetic variants that increase the risk of BC.

It is a project in collaboration with Giuseppe Palmieri of the CNR in Sassari, the Hospitals in Cagliari and Sassari. About 1500 Sardinian patients with BC were recruited, and their genome was compared to the genomes of ~2000 healthy Sardinian individuals, recruited for the projects on MS and T1D.  I have been responsible for coordinating and carrying out the statistical analyses of the project.
