LD) with the true functional allele. Often, multiple polymorphisms within one or more genes are studied. Instead of testing for association with each polymorphism separately, haplotypes can be analyzed and then tested to determine whether a specific haplotype is associated with increased or decreased phenotype. Statistical considerations are described in greater detail in Chap. 2. Association studies do not need genetically related subjects; however, family data can be included in the analyses to overcome problems of hidden population stratification, an effect that could induce false positive association findings [32].
