First Ever Genome-Wide Association Study of Combined Phenotype May Allow for Improved Identification of Variants Associated with Asthma-With-Hay Fever
A study by Valentina Moskvina, Ph.D., of the Cardiff University School of Medicine, Wales, United Kingdom, and colleagues, examined the genetic overlap between Parkinson disease (PD) and Alzheimer disease (AD).
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.
The largest genetic search for "obesity genes" in people of African ancestry has led to the discovery of three new regions of the human genome that influence obesity in these populations and others.
Through a collaborative genome-wide study on individuals, researchers have discovered 14 new genetic variations that are associated with heart rate.
Recently, large studies have identified some of the genetic basis for important common diseases such as heart disease and diabetes, but most of the genetic contribution to them remains undiscovered.
An international study led by King's College London has identified a new genetic variant associated with stroke.
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.
Fifteen new genetic regions associated with coronary artery disease have been identified by a large, international consortium of scientists — including researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine — taking a significant step forward in understanding the root causes of this deadly disease.
