genome-wide association studies

genome-wide association studies

Procedures for matching a genome sequence against an annotated map of common genetic variation. This technique has enabled the identification of genes associated with a rane of diseases including age-related macular degeration, type 2 diabetes, heart attacks and abnormal heart repolarization intervals.
