However, due to rapid advancement of high throughput genotyping technologies, high density single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) chips became available, which made it possible to perform whole genome association (WGA) studies in farm animals (Goddard and Hayes, 2009).
To search for novel human genetic factors that influence HIV viral load, we will conduct what is called a "whole genome association scan" (WGAS) on persons at the extremes of the amount of HIV levels in the blood, under the hypothesis that host genetic factors influence immune responses and durable suppression of HIV infection.

Recent customers include the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, GlaxoSmithKline and Merck, which is working with Perlegen, Affymetrix's service subsidiary, on a whole genome association study.
Tokyo, Japan, July 22, 2005 - (JCNN) - RIKEN and Perlegen Sciences Japan jointly announced on July 21 that the two parties have entered into a collaborative agreement to conduct high-resolution, whole genome association studies with the aim of collaborating to search genetic origins of various diseases.
This whole genome association study capability enables Perlegen to identify genes that work in concert to cause common diseases and affect the body's response to drugs.
Also, the whole genome of the Hereford breed was sequenced by the Bovine Genome Sequencing and Analysis Consortium led by NIH and USDA, and several kinds of high density SNP chips or arrays developed by Illumina or Affymetrix are commercially available (Rincon et al., 2011), enabling the implementation of whole genome association (WGA) studies (Goddard and Hayes, 2009).
A whole genome association study to detect single nucleotide polymorphisms for body conformation traits in a Hanwoo population.
However, application of the method with moderate numbers of genes or SNPs, e.g., tens or hundreds of significant SNPs that have been detected after whole genome association analysis, may be a good strategy to better identify interaction effects between the SNPs.
A whole genome association analysis identifies loci associated with Mycobacterium avium subsp.
