Genetic Architecture Analysis Suggests More Risk SNPs to be Discovered for Common Diseases | GenomeWeb

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The genetic risk for common, complex disease likely lies in many common SNPs combined with a few rare causal variants, according to a Nature Genetics study by an international team that developed a new statistical strategy for delving into the genetic architecture of such diseases.
