Variation in traits can be due to genetic factors or the environment – nature versus nurture – or, more likely, to a combination of both. It can be of interest, especially when a trait is detrimental, to localize the regions of the genome that contain the genes involved and, beyond that, to map them and specific risk variants. Understanding the possible roles that genes may play in trait variation and, furthermore, estimating or modelling the genetic component are important first steps to… CONTINUE READING
