Basic overview of genetic epidemiology How to show the existence of a genetic component for a disease ? How to characterize it ? Principles of segregation analysis How to locate the genes responsible for this component ? Principles of parametric and non parametric linkage and association strategies ; whole genome and candidate gene strategies.
