Interpreting genetic association studies   posted by p-ter @ 9/19/2009 12:52:00 PM

There has previously been some discussion on this site about the failure of past candidate gene association studies for identification of genetic variants that truly influence a phenotype. Much of this involved discussion of the interpretation of p-values in this context (for example, see this thread). Nature Reviews Genetics has just published a must-read review for people interested in these topics.
