Die relativen Risiken komplexer genetischer Krankheitsursachen lassen sich effizient durch eine vollständige retrospektive Erfassung von Patienten in einem geographisch begrenzten Gebiet ermitteln. Das BMBF-geförderte Projekt „PopGen” verfolgt diesen Ansatz durch die umfassende Erhebung genetisch-epidemiologischer Daten für kardiovaskuläre, neuropsychiatrische und umweltbedingte Erkrankungen im Norden Schleswig-Holsteins.

The relative risks of genetic variants associated with complex human diseases can be efficiently assessed by the complete ascertainment of cases in a confined geographical region. The PopGen project, funded by the German Federal Research Ministry (BMBF), pursues this approach in the most northern part of the country (Schleswig-Holstein). In particular, PopGen collects comprehensive genetic epidemiological data for cardiovascular, neuropsychiatric and environmental disease.

Keywords: biology and genetics; biobanks; complex disease; relative risk
