Genetic diversity contributes to both disease susceptibility and variability in response to drugs. However, it has proven difficult to isolate genes that underlie common complex disease and genetic variations that influence clinical response to drugs remain largely uncovered. deCODE has compiled the world's most comprehensive collection of population data which provides an effective system for identifying key genes linked to diseases as well as other phenotypes, such as drug response.
