In the most comprehensive exploration of the association between genetic variation and human metabolism, researchers have provided unprecedented insights into how genetic variants influence complex disease and drug response through metabolic pathways.
'Striking result' may lead to new treatments. Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) March 27, 2014 Researchers at the University of Virginia School of
Scientists studying the genomes of nearly 5,000 people have pinpointed a genetic variant tied to an increased risk for stroke, and have also uncovered new details about an important metabolic pathway that plays a major role in several common diseases.
If a combination of genetic variants are at least partially responsible for a person’s susceptibility to common diseases, then why has research to look for those genetic causes only successfully explained a fraction of the heritable risk of developing them?
NEW YORK, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York Genome Center (NYGC) announced that New York State Governor Andrew M.
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.
In the largest genetic study of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) to date, researchers from the CARDIoGRAMplusC4D Consortium report the identification of 15 genetic regions newly associated with the disease, bringing to 46 the number of regions associated with CAD risk.
