The autoimmune disease vitiligo and the normal trait facial shape represent two extremes of human complex traits. The first is a dichotomous disease trait, and the second is a universal set of interconnected quasi-continuous traits. Both have been approached by genomewide association studies that have begun to yield understanding of their underlying biology.

Light snack will be provided.
