### Evaluating Strategies for Marker Ranking in Genome-wide Association Studies of Complex Traits

André Scherag
Advances in high-throughput genotyping technology lead to the realization of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) which helped identify new susceptibility loci of complex traits. Such studies usually start with genotyping fixed arrays of genetic markers in an initial sample. Out of these markers, [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
