Navigating the evolving knowledge of human genetic variation in health and disease
This chapter presents an overview of evolving methods for tracking and compiling information on genetic factors in disease. It discusses bioinformatics, the Human Genome Epidemiology Network (HuGENet), and genomic databases. Building the knowledge base in human genome epidemiology involves organizing, sharing, mining, interpreting, and evaluating the results of genomic research from a population perspective. This effort faces many technical, scientific, and social challenges, which can be met only by unprecedented levels of interaction across multiple levels of the research enterprise, and by cooperation among individual scientists, research groups, institutions, and agencies.
