Genome Future Aspect, Genome-Wide Association Studies


Genome-wide association study (GWAS) technology has been a primary method of identifying the genes which are responsible for diseases .A genome-wide association study (GWA study, or GWAS), also known as whole genome association study (WGA study, or WGAS), is an examination of a genome-wide set of genetic variants in different individuals to see if any variant is associated with a trait. GWASs typically focus on associations between single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) and traits like major human diseases, but can equally be applied to any other organism like plant, animals, and model organisms. In genome-wide association studies (GWAS), researchers analyze the genetic variation across the entire human genome, searching for variations that are associated with observable traits or certain diseases.
