Comprehensive evaluation of common genetic variations through association of SNP structure with common complex disease in the genome-wide scale is currently a hot area in human genome research. Computational science, which includes computational intelligence, has recently become the third method of scientific enquiry besides theory and experimentation. Interest grew fast in developing and applying computational intelligence techniques to disease mapping using SNP and haplotype data. This review provides a coverage of recently developed theories and applications in computational intelligence for gene-gene and gene-environment interactions in complex diseases in genetic association study.
