@Dan, could you explain why you have chosen JH Moore as your 'role model' rather than allowing a list to form either organically (ie democratically) or by some other means or person.

Dan Fornika Hey Matt,

I read one of Dr. Moore's blog posts here:

Hi everyone. It's great that so many people are following this group. Lately I haven't had much time to update it, and there really isn't much to do now that the full list is up there.

Please note that the group is limited to 10 'members' so I decided to only allow 'followers' to the group. I think this is also more appropriate because I didn't create the original list, and I don't want to mis-represent which papers are included on the list.

If anyone is interested in taking over admin duties for this list, let me know. Otherwise I'll just continue to allow followers for as long as there is interest.

New 'journal club' blog post at Genetic Thinking. http://goo.gl/h812Z

With 41 members (and counting) this group is now in the top 10 most-followed groups on Mendeley! Thanks to everybody for taking the time to join. I think that these papers are really worthy of discussion, so I'd encourage everyone to post questions or comments to the newsfeed, or contact your fellow followers directly.

I'd like to facilitate a little discussion here. Please, feel free to join in.

A lot of the discussion around the merits and prospects of Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) is focused on the question of the 'missing heritability.' Essentially, if we add up the effect sizes of all GWAS hits for a certain phenotype, they fail to explain the genetic effects predicted by heritability measurements.

So in your most simple, clear terms possible; what is the precise meaning of the term 'heritability?'

User Deleted Hi Dan. To generate conversation at the risk of ressurecting old comments: I think it's well recognized that GWAS were not able to explain much of the variance in most traits. However, I get the impression that some of the disappointment arrises out of the preconceived notion that there would be a handful of loci that would be responsible for di...

I've been debating what to do about managing members & followers on this group. I'd like to facilitate discussion on these papers, but I'm limited to accepting only 10 members. Can someone who is following this group confirm that they can also post to the group newsfeed? If not, send me a quick personal message.

This is a great idea. This might actually get me on the road to trying to read all of them. Good work Dan!

Thanks to everyone who has started following the group lately. I like the attitude Dr. Moore takes towards recent trends in genetic studies. He is always critical of overly-simple genetic models and assumptions.

I think that he is right that the only way forward in genetics is to embrace complexity, non-linearity and interaction. Remember that complexity need not be complicated. Sometimes the most simple, elegant system can reveal astounding complexity.

Added sections on Linkage, Linkage Disequilibrium and Haplotypes. Looks like the final list will be over 100. Hope everyone has set aside some extra time to get through all these papers!

Just added the 'GWAS' section, up to 79 publications now. More to come, or check the original list here: http://compgen.blogspot.com/2009/05/100-publications-every-graduate-student.html

I've noticed that a handful of people have started following this list. You might be wondering why there are only 58 papers in this list of 100 papers. I'll be adding the remaining 42 when I have a chance.
