While genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been marginally successful at identifing high risk SNPs for cancer, further deep sequencing efforts are needed. This presentation discusses novel analytic approaches for optimizing search strategy and reducing false positive findings. Validation techniques also will be discussed in the context of independent multicentric approaches.
