Abstract:

Human genetic variation is a major determinant of susceptibility to many common infectious diseases. Malaria was the first disease to be studied extensively and many susceptibility and resistance loci have been identified. However, genes for other diseases such as HIV/AIDS and mycobacterial infections are now being identified using a variety of approaches.
