Scientists Hope To Improve Genome-wide Association Studies With Two New Methods
2013-04-26 11:25:54

As scientists probe and parse the genetic bases of what makes a human a human (or one human different from another), and vigorously push for greater use of whole genome sequencing, they find themselves increasingly threatened by the unthinkable: Too much data to make full sense of.

Researchers continuing the study of the human genome have mapped out four new regions that are associated with a painful and often dangerous condition (Behcet's disease) found in people with a lineage to ancestors along the Silk Road.


Word of the Day
pawl
  • A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
The word 'pawl' probably comes from a Latin word meaning 'stake'.
