Metrics Madness

Posted 3 years ago

An Introduction to Complex Disease Genetics

Posted 4 years ago

What's the difference between a gene 'for' a disease and genes that predispose you to susceptibility? How can we use markers to determine the likelihood a patient will develop a disease? What's nature and what's nurture?
