Overcoming barriers to progress in exercise genomics

Exerc Sport Sci Rev. 2011 Oct;39(4):212-7. doi: 10.1097/JES.0b013e31822643f6.


This commentary focuses on the issues of statistical power, the usefulness of hypothesis-free approaches such as in genome-wide association explorations, the necessity of expanding the research beyond common DNA variants, the advantage of combining transcriptomics with genomics, and the complexities inherent to the search for links between genotype and phenotype in exercise genomics research.
