- Applications of DNA chips for genomic analysis. Hacia, J.G.; Brody, L.C.; Collins, F.S. // Molecular Psychiatry;1998, Vol. 3 Issue 6, p483
A major frontier in medical genetics is the definition of the molecular basis of multifactorial diseases. This is especially relevant in the field of clinical psychiatry where the majority of common disorders display complex inheritance patterns, and are further influenced by environmental...

- Primer on Medical Genomics Part VIII: Essentials of Medical Genetics for the Practicing Physician. Ensenauer, Regina E.; Reinke, Shanda S.; Ackerman, Michael J.; Tester, David J.; Whiteman, David A.H.; Tefferi, Ayalew // Mayo Clinic Proceedings;Jul2003, Vol. 78 Issue 7, p846
After the mapping and sequencing of the human genome, medical professionals from essentially all specialties turned their attention to investigating the role genes play in health and disease. Until recently, medical genetics was considered a specialty of minor practical relevance. This view has...
- Searching for Disease-Susceptibility Loci by Testing for Hardy-Weinberg Disequilibrium in a Gene Bank of Affected Individuals. W-C. Lee // American Journal of Epidemiology;9/1/2003, Vol. 158 Issue 5, p397
The future of genetic studies of complex human diseases will rely more and more on the epidemiologic association paradigm. The author proposes to scan the genome for disease-susceptibility gene(s) by testing for deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium in a gene bank of affected individuals. A...
