Coalescent methods for fine-scale disease-gene mapping.
Fine-scale mapping methods have been developed to localize functional polymorphisms within large candidate regions identified from previous linkage and/or association studies. Population-based association fine-mapping methods utilize linkage disequilibrium of alleles at high-density marker single-nucleotide polymorphisms with the functional polymorphism, generated as the result of shared ancestry of individuals within the population. Here, we review fine-mapping methods that model the shared ...Expand abstract
