The dissection of complex susceptibility to infectious disease: bacterial, viral and parasitic infections.


Infectious diseases are the result of the exposure of susceptible hosts to pathogenic microbes. Genetic factors are important determinants of host susceptibility and efforts are being made to establish the molecular identity of such genetic susceptibility variants by genome-wide association studies. Results obtained to date partly confirm already known… (More)
