Assessing candidate genes as risk factors for mental disorders: the value of population-based epidemiological studies

Jorm, Anthony F; Easteal, Simon

Description

Background: It is now possible to routinely collect DNA for the investigation of genetic risk factors in psychiatric epidemiology. However, concerns have been raised about the investigation of genetic risk factors in population surveys and in case-control studies with population controls, because of spurious associations arising through population stratification.
