Five articles on the success/failure of GWAS

Here are four interesting and provocative articles in New England Journal of Medicine:

David Goldstein: Common Genetic Variation and Human Traits

Joel Hirschhorn: Genomewide Association Studies — Illuminating Biologic Pathways

Peter Kraft and David Hunter: Genetic Risk Prediction — Are We There Yet?

John Hardy & Andrew Singleton: Genomewide Association Studies and Human Disease

And after all their hype over the last year or so, a rather pessimistic article in the NYT.

Share your thoughts in the comments!
