Human genome epidemiology (HuGE) uses systematic applications of epidemiologic methods to assess the impact of human genetic variation on health and disease. In the past ten years, human genome epidemiology has made great progresses along with advances in genomics technologies, which make it possible for the examination of genetic variants in a large sample size at a sufficiently low cost. Genetic association study in population provides a powerful approach to identify variants or genes… CONTINUE READING
