Hints of hidden heritability in GWAS.

Abstract

Although susceptibility loci identified through genome-wide association studies (GWAS) typically explain only a small proportion of the heritability, a classical quantitative genetic analysis now argues that considering together all common SNPs can explain a large proportion of the heritability of these complex traits. A related study provides recommendations for the sample sizes needed in future GWAS to identify additional susceptibility loci.
