Genetic analysis of normal human phenotypes within the people of the British Isles

Abstract:

Genome-wide association studies have been of fundamental use in identifying common risk alleles with modest effects underlying multifactorial diseases such as diabetes, cancer, Crohn's disease as well as in polygenic traits, such as pigmentation, involving multiple genes. This thesis, using the GWAS approach, investigates the genetic basis of normal human traits such as human basal pigmentation, sensory perception and food preferences in a well-characterised population of the British Isles...
