Featured eBook: Genetic Epidemiology. - M. Dawn Teare

Click here to read this book online.

Genetic Epidemiology “Arising from firm foundations laid by mathematical population genetics, clinical genetics, and statistical epidemiology, genetic epidemiology attempts to identify the many components of risk attributable to genes, environments, and interactions, and the course of its research can follow many diverse paths. In Genetic Epidemiology, the success of genome-wide association studies in their identification of hundreds of disease susceptibility loci has inspired renowned experts to contribute thorough methodologies, which aim to bring together bioinformaticians, geneticists, clinicians, statisticians, and epidemiologists in the study of this vital field. Genetic Epidemiology aims to provide a basic framework for crucial interdisciplinary communication and understanding suited to newcomers to the field as well as experienced researchers and graduate level students.” *
