Abstract


The analysis of complex traits, including those involved in many common diseases, has encountered significant difficulties, and, despite major efforts during the past decade, has had little success. Current advances in genomics, however, promise to change this. Recently, Steinmetz et al. used a new technique to produce the first complete quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of a complex trait from phenotype to gene to be published entirely in a single report. This marks a significant advance over previous QTL analyses, which took several years. The work exemplifies some of the complexities of QTL mapping and demonstrates a novel method to resolve the underlying genetic architecture of QTLs in yeast. Here we discuss this work in the general context of genetic dissection of complex traits and QTLs.
