A report on the British Atherosclerosis Society autumn meeting 'Genetics of Complex Diseases', Cambridge, UK, 17-18 September 2009.

Complex disease genetics is at a critical turning point. Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have generated an abundance of data, resulting in the use of advanced analytic methods and raising many questions. This common platform has brought together various scientific disciplines, including genetics, epidemiology, bioinformatics, statistics and medicine, reflected in the diverse backgrounds of speakers and delegates at this meeting. Here, we summarize two principal themes that emerged in the meeting: first, the success of GWASs in the discovery of novel disease loci using emerging new analytical methodologies, and second, the current and future translational applications of GWASs...
