We report tree-based association analysis as applied to the two Framingham cohorts and to the first replication of the simulated data obtained from the Genetic Analysis Workshop 13. For this analysis, familial association is ignored. The two endpoints examined are hypertension status at initial visit and time-to-hypertension, using a censored data approach. Although linkage association has previously been reported with hypertension, we found no association using the tree-based methodology.
