Great paper

Love this paper. It's absolutely critical that we take a systems-level view of how the genetic-basis of disease. It gets around a lot of the limitations in previous approaches (at the cost of knowing some underlying details about which combinations of alleles are causal, etc.). Papers like this would greatly benefit from sequence data as rare alleles and copy number polymorphisms could be used to measure similarity in cases and controls.
