Analysis of Human Genetic Linkage, third edition
New to this edition is a chapter on complex traits, such as diabetes, some cancers, and psychiatric conditions. Also new is an overview of nonparametric approaches to linkage and association analysis. A chapter on two-locus inheritance introduces the reader to many of the intricate aspects of complex traits. Although the book's primary audience is in the field of genetics, physicians and others without sophisticated training in genetics can understand and apply the principles and techniques discussed.
About the Author
"One of the best books that cover the theory behind linkage analysis. Scientists with an interest in genetic linkage analysis should definitely consider allocating space on their bookshelves for this book."—Biotech Software and Internet Report
"A valuable resource. It is the most accessible work on the subject, and should be in the collection of everyone interested in mapping human genes."—Doody's Book Review
"Overall the book achieves an excellent compromise between presenting important conclusions and working out the details . . . Analysis of Human Genetic Linkage is a good book that has been made substantially better. It continues to be the standard reference for every linkage analyst's library and to provide an excellent introduction for the interested beginner with a background in the biological or mathematical sciences."—American Journal of Human Genetics, reviewing a previous edition
