Résumé

Genome-Wide Association Studies, or GWAS, aim at finding Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) that are associated with a phenotype of interest. GWAS are known to suffer from the large dimensionality of the data with respect to the number of available samples. Other limiting factors include the dependency between SNPs, due to linkage disequilibrium (LD), and the need to account for population structure, that is to say, confounding due to genetic ancestry.We propose an efficient approach for the multivariate analysis of multi-population GWAS data based on a multitask group Lasso formulation. Each task corresponds to a subpopulation of the data, and each group to an LD-block. This formulation alleviates the curse of dimensionality, and makes it possible to identify disease LD-blocks shared across populations/tasks, as well as some that are specific to one population/task. In addition, we use stability selection to increase the robustness of our approach. Finally, gap safe screening rules speed up computations enough that our method can run at a genome-wide scale.To our knowledge, this is the first framework for GWAS on diverse populations combining feature selection at the LD-groups level, a multitask approach to address population structure, stability selection, and safe screening rules. We show that our approach outperforms state-of-the-art methods on both a simulated and a real-world cancer datasets.
