Brief description A genetic contribution to many common diseases is shown by an increased risk of disease in family members of diseased individuals. However, for each disease there are likely to be many hundreds of DNA variants each conferring a small increase in risk. This proposal is about the development of better statistical methods to predict disease from genome-wide genetic marker data. Individual risk prediction for disease is likely to become an integral part of Genomic Medicine in Australia.
