- ... Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been successful in detecting associations between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and phenotypic variation and in identifying several causative mutations. However, SNPs with significant association identified using GWAS tend to explain only small fraction of the phenotypic variations. GWAS are affected by lack of power due to small sample size, la ...
