Latest International HapMap Project Stories
SALT LAKE CITY, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The USTAR Center for Genetic Discovery is partnering with California based Omicia, Inc, to make analyzing a patient's genome as routine
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.
Geneticists at Emory University School of Medicine have demonstrated a method that enables the routine amplification of all the genes on the X chromosome.
As much as 90 percent of variation in adult height may be caused by genetic inheritance, but a multitude of genes are involved.
A large collaborative study has added to the growing list of genetic variants that determine how tall a person will be.
In an unprecedented international project, researchers have found multiple genetic mutations that play a role in heart attack or coronary artery disease (CAD) risk.
The first entire genome of an Irish individual has been sequenced.
New findings show the value of genetic studies across human populations and the value of the latest DNA sequencing technologies to interrogate genetic variation.
It has been ten years since the human genome was first sequenced, and in the time since, there have been many great findings in understanding the origins and evolution of mankind.
