Correcting errors and proofreading are crucial in a post-genomic era, when DNA sequences are already part of an effective medical screening and treatments. SNPs genotyping of complex human genes can lead to questionable associations if not properly handled. Here, we report about a spurious (reitered) association between FCGR2B genetic polymorphisms and systemic lupus erythematosus.
