The Illumina Genomics Podcast, Episode 18: Genetics of Children's Complex Diseases - From GWAS to NGS

Complex diseases are associated with genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. Genome-wide association studies, or GWAS, use arrays to identify DNA variants associated with traits or diseases. Professors Struan Grant and Andrew Wells of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia discuss how they use NGS to map variants to causal genes.
