When linkage is inconclusive, like it was in this case, and more than one candidate region exists, it is now more efficient to perform a WES or even a WGS experiment rather than sequencing several candidate regions using more traditional approaches. Interestingly in this case, although the authors performed a WGS study, sequencing of the exome only would have been just as fruitful. 4 Homozygosity Mapping and WES/WGS Studies Homozygosity mapping is a powerful approach for disease gene mapping in cases of rare recessive disease observed in consanguineous families (Lander and Botstein 1987).

There is nearly 40 years of evidence suggesting that genetic factors are also major drivers of NPC risk. Immigrants from high- to low-risk NPC areas maintain their high NPC risk (Parkin and Iscovich 1997). Also, family, twin, and segregations studies support genetic factors as strong determinants of NPC risk (Gajwani et al. 1980; Zeng and Jia 2002; Jia et al. 2005; Ng et al. 2009). More specifically, there are multiple reported associations between NPC and loci linked to the regions of the genome where human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genes reside, yet the implications of the HLA allelic associations remain enigmatic.
