Natural variation in Nature

Nature has a whole slew of reviews on the current progress and prospects of mapping the genetic determinants of phenotypic variation:
Association mapping in humans (here)
Mapping behavioral traits in mouse (here)
Genetic variation in malaria (here)
Mapping in plants (here)
and how we should use natural variation to learn about biological systems (here)
quite a fun reading list.
