  • Basic concepts in the study of diseases with complex genetics
    This review by M Burmesiter is a short introduction and summary of methodologies and concepts used in complex human genetics intended for non-geneticists. In particular, I discuss how to determine if a trait is genetic. Other key topics included linkage, sib-pairs, and TDT, and other association tests used to map complex psychiatric traits and diseases.
