This chapter reports the findings and recommendations from a multidisciplinary workshop, including geneticists, epidemiologists, journal editors, and bioinformatics experts, that was sponsored by the Human Genome Epidemiology Network (HuGENet) and held in Atlanta on January 24-25, 2008. The meeting was convened in order to discuss synthesis and appraisal of cumulative evidence on genetic associations and to develop a strategy for an online encyclopedia on genetic variation and common human diseases.

Keywords: genetic association studies; gene-disease associations; genome-wide association studies

Chapter.  7771 words.  Illustrated.
