The Genetics of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

In Pharmacogenomics:
The articles published in this special issue of Pharmacogenomics culminate from a multidisciplinary group of researchers, demonstrating that data integration and multidisciplinary collaboration can yield novel approaches for handling large, complex data sets and reveal new insight and relevance to a complex illness such as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Data were generated from a 2-day clinical study of CFS and comprised clinical, genomic and genetic information. The data, including over 500 clinical and epidemiological measurements and 20,000 gene expression measurements, was shared with 20 investigators who were challenged with integrating the data to delineate the heterogeneity of the study population and identify biological correlates of CFS.
