  • About the Edition

    According to the National Institute of Health, a genome-wide association study is defined as any study of genetic variation across the entire human genome that is designed to identify genetic associations with observable traits (such as blood pressure or weight), or the presence or absence of a disease or condition. Whole genome information, when combined with clinical and other phenotype data, offers the potential for increased understanding of basic biological processes affecting human health, improvement in the prediction of disease and patient care, and ultimately the realization of the promise of personalized medicine. In addition, rapid advances in understanding the patterns of human genetic variation and maturing high-throughput, cost-effective methods for genotyping are providing powerful research tools for identifying genetic variants that contribute to health and disease. (good paragraph) This burgeoning science merges the principles of statistics and genetics studies to make sense of the vast amounts of information available with the mapping of genomes. In order to make the most of the information available, statistical tools must be tailored and translated for the analytical issues which are original to large-scale association studies. This book will provide researchers with advanced biological knowledge who are entering the field of genome-wide association studies with the groundwork to apply statistical analysis tools appropriately and effectively. With the use of consistent examples throughout the work, chapters will provide readers with best practice for getting started (design), analyzing, and interpreting data according to their research interests. Frequently used tests will be highlighted and a critical analysis of the advantages and disadvantage complimented by case studies for each will provide readers with the information they need to make the right choice for their research.

    New book offers practical advice for unraveling the genetics of complex human diseases 09/14/ COLD SPRING HARBOR, N.Y. (Sept. 14, ) – Many human diseases—including Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, cancer, and cardiovascular disease—are caused by multiple genetic variants and the interaction of those variants with the environment. Summary. Genetics of Complex Disease examines how the identification of genetic variations that increase or reduce the risk of common, genetically complex, diseases can be used to improve our understanding of the pathology of many common diseases; enable better patient management and care; and help with differential diagnosis. It starts with the questions of "what", "why" and . Therefore, from basic science point of view, the ultimate goal of HLA association studies is to find out how genes cause the disease or modify susceptibility or course of it. In the modern era of HLA association studies, the conceptualization, design, execution and interpretation have gained new .

In genetics, a genome-wide association study (GWA study, or GWAS), also known as whole genome association study (WGA study, or WGAS), is an observational study of a genome-wide set of genetic variants in different individuals to see if any variant is associated with a trait.

GWASs typically focus on associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and. Our aim was to determine whether association studies could be used to fine map this disease locus of interest.
