Genome Wide Association Studies
Some people in our group work on genome wide association studies (GWAS).
For an introduction to GWAS, with an emphasis on human studies, you could start with a nice tutorial article BaldingTutorial, and a review of more recent issues McCarthyReview. There is also a nice review about approaches for rodent studies FlintReview.
Many statistical methods are implemented in PLINK.
Our own software for association testing using uncertain genotypes is QUICKTEST.
