Re-evaluating the relationship between missing heritability and the microbiome.

Related Articles Re-evaluating the relationship between missing heritability and the microbiome. Microbiome. 2020 Jun 08;8(1):87 Authors: Douglas GM, Bielawski JP, Langille MGI Abstract Human genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have recurrently estimated lower heritability estimates than familial studies. Many explanations have been suggested to explain these lower estimates, including that a substantial proportion of genetic variation …
