Type II diabetes remains a genetic nightmare. The major problem is identifying suitable pedigrees, sib-pairs, and populations for study. Segregation analysis data suggest that type II diabetes is likely to be polygenic, although one or more major genes could also be involved. This and the high prevalence of diabetes affect the strategies for searching for genetic mutations. Linkage analysis in classical type II diabetes pedigrees is unlikely to be successful. In addition, affected sib-pair an...Expand abstract
