Identification of Common Genetic Variants Predisposing to Neurobehavioral Disease by way of Genome-Wide SNP Association Studies

Abstract

Dr. David Craig began by explaining expression and linkage studies. He then focused on genome-wide association studies (GWAS), giving examples from Diabetes Type 2 and Alzheimer’s research. Dr. Craig concluded with the recognition that GWAS cannot at the present adequately account for environmental influences on disease.To watch Dr. Craig’s presentation, please see the Panel 3 "Google Video posting.":http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7775076897136846879&hl=en
