Nature Genetics volume 39, pages 10561057 (2007) | Download Citation

Subjects

The report of a haplotype map for the selfing plant Arabidopsis thaliana has uncovered numerous major-effect polymorphisms and rapid linkage disequilibrium decay. This work lays the foundation for genome-wide association studies at near-gene-level resolution in a model organism possessing substantial functional diversity and extensive community resources.
