HuGE Book

New book published by OUP:

Human Genome Epidemiology: A Scientific Foundation for Using Genetic Information to Improve Health and Prevent Disease, 2004. Editors: M. Khoury, J. Little, and W. Burke.

From the Preface:

In this book, we show how the epidemiologic approach will play an important role in the continuum from gene discovery to the development and applications of genetic tests. We call this continuum human genome epidemiology  (or HuGE) to denote an evolving field of inquiry that uses systematic applications of epidemiologic methods to assess the impact of human genetic variation on health and disease.
