Assuming that genome association analysis (WGA) applied to human case- the functional genetic variant acts on the nearest gene control studies will affect complex trait analysis in the (which is not always the case), then human WGA delivers mouse. At first sight it might now seem that one can identify single-gene resolution. In contrast, a detected QTL in an F the genetic determinants of human complex disease intercross between two inbred laboratory mouse strains that directly. However, the picture is less straightforward, for explains 5% of the phenotypic variance will be mapped although a significant number of genes have been identified into a 95% confidence interval of approximately 30 Mb, and replicated across different human WGA studies, in Mammalian Genome Springer Journals
