Incorrect Legend in: How to Interpret a Genome-wide Association Study

JAMA. 2008;299(18):2150. doi:10.1001/jama.299.18.2150-a

Incorrect Legend: In the Special Communication entitled “How to Interpret a Genome-wide Association Study” published in the March 19, 2008, issue of JAMA (2008;299[11]:1335-1344), an integral word was omitted from the Figure 3 legend. The sentence that read, “Genome-wide association studies assume a priori hypotheses about candidate genes or regions that might be associated with disease; rather, they test single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) throughout the genome for possible evidence of genetic susceptibility” should have read, “Genome-wide association studies assume no a priori hypotheses about candidate genes or regions that might be associated with disease; rather, they test single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) throughout the genome for possible evidence of genetic susceptibility.”
