1993), it has already become de rigueur in research on dementia to genotype subjects for apolipoprotein E in order to ascertain whether the results differ for individuals with and without this genetic risk factor. Genotyping apolipoprotein E will become clinically routine if a genetic risk factor is found to predict differential response to interventions or treatments. In terms of clinical work, DNA may eventually lead to gene-based diagnoses and treatment programmes. The most exciting potential for DNA research is to be able to predict genetic risk for an individual and to intervene to prevent problems before full-blown disorders emerge and create cascades of complications that are difficult to counteract.

1998), which has been shown to be especially active in brain regions most involved in learning and memory (Wickelgren 1998). , in press). The problem with using a dense map of markers for a genome scan is the amount of genotyping required. In order to scan the entire genome at 1 million DNA basepair intervals (1 Mb), about 3500 DNA markers would need to be genotyped. This would require 700 000 genotypings in a study of 100 high ‘g’ individuals and 100 controls. With markers at 1 Mb intervals, no QTL would be farther than 500 000 base pairs from a marker.
