Latest Human genetic variation Stories
U.S. researchers say data from the Human Genome Project are shedding new light on Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. Over the ages we cataloged the anatomical differences between people and eventually biochemical differences, too. Now we can get down to the molecular differences, Carlos D.
A U.S. study suggests identifying a single, common variation in a person's genetic information can help predict heart attack or other heart disease events.
Perlegen, a leader in discovering clinically important genetic variations that affect patients' drug response and predisposition to disease, announced today that it has launched a new, proprietary approach to discovering rare genetic variations.
By Nicholas Wade Two groups of researchers hunting for schizophrenia genes on a larger scale than ever before have found new genetic variants that point toward a different understanding of the disease. The variants discovered by the two groups, one led by Dr.
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/8cb5a3/evolution_in_healt) has announced the addition of the "Evolution in Health and Disease" report to their offering. A fully revised edition of a volume written by the worlds leading authorities on this subject.
Perlegen Sciences, Inc., a molecular diagnostics company focused on the discovery and commercialization of clinically important human genetic variation, announced today the opening of its portfolio of patented technologies that together enable whole genome association studies capable of assessing an individual's predisposition to specific disease risks and treatment outcomes.
ENVIRONMENTAL factors can affect DNA over a person's lifetime in ways that may be inherited, new research has shown. The findings add to the growing evidence that diet and lifestyle have health affects which may pass down generations.
University of Michigan scientists and their colleagues at the National Institute on Aging have produced the largest and most detailed worldwide study of human genetic variation, a treasure trove offering new insights into early migrations out of Africa and across the globe.
Canadian scientists have discovered subtle genetic differences between individuals at the DNA level might help identify disease risk factors.
In studies involving more than 35,000 people and a survey across the entire human genome, scientists have found evidence that common genetic variants recently linked to osteoarthritis may also play a minor role in human height.
