Abstract

We examine the current effort to develop a haplotype map of the human genome and suggest an alternative approach which represents linkage disequilibrium patterns in the form of a metric LD map. LD maps have some of the useful properties of genetic linkage maps but have a much higher resolution which is optimal for SNP-based association mapping of common diseases. The studies that have been undertaken to date suggest that LD and recombination maps show some close similarities because of abundant, narrow, recombination hot spots. These hot spots are co-localised in all populations but, unlike linkage maps, LD maps differ in scale for different populations because of differences in population history. The prospects for developing optimized panels of SNPs and the use of linkage disequilibrium maps in disease gene localisation are assessed in the light of recent evidence.
