Sequential recruitment of study participants may inflate genetic heritability estimates


After the success of genome-wide association studies to uncover complex trait loci, attempts to explain the remaining genetic heritability (h 2) are mainly focused on unraveling rare variant associations and gene–gene or gene–environment interactions. Little attention is paid to the possibility that h 2 estimates are inflated as a consequence of the… (More)
