Abstract

Many diseases are influenced by multiple genetic and environmental factors. Identifying the genes contributing to the probability of developing such diseases poses an extraordinary challenge because each gene may have a small influence. Further, in the presence of other influential genes and environmental factors, the impact of a single gene may be amplified. Many approaches are being taken to address the challenge presented by complex trait genetics, and data are being amassed at an alarming rate. Access to these data is crucial for coordination of efforts and avoidance of unnecessary duplication of research. This appendix describes some of the resources available on the World Wide Web that provide genetic and genomic data, tools for analyzing genome data, information on funding opportunities, and information about ethical, legal and social issues associated with the genetic analysis of disease traits.
