Data Error in Text in: How to Use an Article About Genetic Association: A: Background Concepts

JAMA. 2009;301(10):1024. doi:10.1001/jama.301.10.1024-c

Data Error in Text: In the Users' Guides to the Medical Literature article entitled “How to Use an Article About Genetic Association: A: Background Concepts,” published in the January 7, 2009, issue of JAMA (2009;301[1]:74-81), an incorrect number appeared on page 81. In the penultimate paragraph, the second sentence should have read, “If there is no linkage, allele A at SNP A and allele B at SNP B will be found together in the same person 0.80 × 0.60 = 48% of the time, ie, consistent with chance.”
