|Title:||Size matters: just how big is BIG?: Quantifying realistic sample size requirements for human genome epidemiology.|
|Citation:||INT J EPIDEMIOL, 2009, 38 (1), pp. 263-273|
|Abstract:||Despite earlier doubts, a string of recent successes indicates that if sample sizes are large enough, it is possible-both in theory and in practice-to identify and replicate genetic associations with common complex diseases. But human genome epidemiology is expensive and, from a strategic perspective, it is still unclear what 'large enough' really means. This question has critical implications for governments, funding agencies, bioscientists and the tax-paying public. Difficult strategic decisions with imposing price tags and important opportunity costs must be taken.|
