This article may be too technical for most readers to understand. Please expand it to make it accessible to non-experts, without removing the technical details.

Studies concerning genetic association aim testing whether single-locus allele or genotype frequencies (or more generally, multilocus haplotype frequencies) are different between 2 groups (usually diseased subjects and healthy controls). Genetic association studies are based on the principle that genotypes are measured "directly", i.e. by sequencing the actual genetic code.
