In order to screen the Turkish population for evidence of association with multiple sclerosis, we typed 6000 microsatellite markers in separately pooled DNA samples from 197 cases and 199 controls following the Genetic Analysis of Multiple sclerosis in Europeans (GAMES) protocol. Twelve markers showing evidence for association were identified. One of these markers lying directly in a region which is also implicated in the Turkish linkage screen (chromosome 5p15) and thus shows evidence for both linkage and association in independent data sets.
