A graphical representation of the increasing number of published haplotype-association studies. A search was performed in Pubmed using the terms "haplotype" and "association" from 1997 to 2009. Even though the reference list may include review articles, methodological papers or even irrelevant works, the trend is obvious, especially after 2003 when the HapMap project was presented. The search was conducted during December 2009 and thus the count for 2009 may be an underestimate.
