Title: Mendelian Randomization: a case for Bayesian thinking
Mendelian Randomization methods use measured variation in genes to assess the possible disease-causing effect of a modifiable exposure, without requiring a controlled experiment. Within a discussion of this area, we illustrate advantages of a Bayesian approach to the problem and, more in general, to statistical analysis.
