Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) are designed to detect the statistical association between genomic markers and phenotypic data in order to identify loci that control complex traits and more recently to quantify the relative amount of trait variance that arises from genetic sources. Moreover, many genomic resources have been generated and analytical tools developed to bring together information linking GWAS results to causal variants. This book chapter is an effort to bring together information about current aspects of genome-wide studies and the concept of heritability
