Overview

Statistical Genetics is an advanced textbook focusing on conducting genome-wide linkage and association analysis in order to identify the genes responsible for complex behaviors and diseases. Starting with an introductory section on statistics and quantitative genetics, it covers both established and new methodologies, providing the genetic and statistical theory on which they are based. Each chapter is written by leading researchers, who give the reader the benefit of their experience with worked examples, study design, and sources of error.

The text can be used in conjunction with an associated website (www.genemapping.org) that provides supplementary material and links to downloadable software.
