The Genetics of Parkinson's Disease: A question and a meta-question

Caught this very interesting presentation on the Genetics of Parkinson's Disease by Ellen Sidransky and couldn't help but think of several issues including the most important one in my mind: How come GWAS studies on Parkinson's did not pick up on the GBA gene ? Also the mosaic at the very end reminded me of another one we mentioned about multiplexing happening with accidental cameras. Could Compressive Sensing that is concerned with multiplexing signals and finding the sparsest one, be helpful in the recognition and even classification of diseases ?
