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.

Annals of Human Genetics
2012-05-07 06:56:58

The Annals of Human Genetics is a peer-reviewed scientific journal established in 1925 as the Annals of Eugenics by Karl Pearson, who was also the founder of Biometrika in 1901. Annals of Eugenics was changed to its current moniker in 1954 to reflect the changing views on the role of eugenics in society. It is published by Wiley-Blackwell in association with the University College, London. As of May 2012, its editor-in-chief is Andres Ruiz-Linares. The Institute for Scientific Information...
