Large-scale genetic analysis of quantitative traits

Abstract:

Recent advances in genotyping technology coupled with an improved understanding of the architecture of linkage disequilibrium across the human genome have resulted in genome-wide association studies (GWAS) becoming a useful and widely applied tool for discovering common genetic variants associated with both quantitative traits and disease risk. After each GWAS was completed, it left behind a set of genotypes and phenotypes, often including anthropometric measures used as covariates. Geneti...
