Genomewide SNP assay reveals mutations underlying Parkinson disease.

Abstract

Technologies that allow genotyping of more than 100,000 polymorphisms in a single assay enable the execution of genomewide SNP (GWSNP) association studies to identify common genetic variants underlying traits. Less appreciated is the ability of GWSNP assays to map and directly identify rare mutations that cause disease. Here we show the use of this approach… (More)
