Cell: Genetic Heterogeneity in Human Disease Review

Check out this review essay in Cell: Genetic Heterogeneity in Human Disease, by Jon McClellan and Mary-Claire King. (King's lab, incidentally, was the group who discovered via linkage analysis that the gene for early-onset breast and ovarian cancer on chromosome 17q21, nearly 5 years before Myriad Genetics filed for patent protection on the BRCA1/2 genes). Anyhow, looks like a great review on genetic heterogeneity and GWAS. Thanks @JVJAI.
