Complex traits, including most common diseases, are due to multiple genetic factors as well as environmental factors. Jake Lusis, Department of Microbiology, Immunology & Molecular Genetics at UCLA explains that these have proved difficult to study using traditional genetic approaches that examine one gene at a time. He describes his current studies that focus on "systems genetics" approaches to complex metabolic and cardiovascular traits. (#17968)
