GSSE: Genotype-Specific Survival Estimation

We propose a fully efficient sieve maximum likelihood method to estimate genotype-specific distribution of time-to-event outcomes under a nonparametric model. We can handle missing genotypes in pedigrees. We estimate the time-dependent hazard ratio between two genetic mutation groups using B-splines, while applying nonparametric maximum likelihood estimation to the reference baseline hazard function. The estimators are calculated via an expectation-maximization algorithm.
