Brief description Many recent gene mapping efforts have focused on population based approaches instead of previously used family based approaches. One of the limiting factors with population based approaches is the cost of the technology - each participant must be evaluated (or genotyped) for hundreds of thousands of genetic markers. The cost can be reduced by using an approach which pools individuals together for genotyping, with statistical models used to deal with the problems that this creates.
