    How hard is it to tell if a given genetic correlation is directly causal, indirectly causal (e.g. regulatory or something), or just a sign of common ancestral exposures producing common transgenerational effects on phenotype? What methods are used?

      can you elaborate? are you talking about correlation between alleles or between alleles and traits?

      • http://slartibartfastibast.tumblr.com/ slartibartfastibast

        Any correlation found between sequenceable genetic material and phenotype (e.g. an allele, a deletion/duplication, etc.).
