Recombinant DNA approaches to disease analysis may be as applicable to studies of disease association as they are to the analysis and diagnosis of single-gene defects. Population and/or family association analyses, using restriction fragment length polymorphisms around candidate genes as markers, have been employed to study conditions such as atherosclerosis and disease with an HLA-association. Progress made to date in disease-association studies using recombinant DNA methodology is reviewed, the rationale behind such studies is examined and associated problems and pitfalls discussed.
