central nervous system disorder Migraine GWAS Points to Subtype-Specific Loci, Potential Mechanisms Researchers linked migraine risk to 123 loci, including risk variants not found in the past and loci implicated in migraine subtypes. Expression-Based Survival Signature Proposed for Glioblastoma Using RNA sequence data from the Cancer Genome Atlas and the Chinese Glioma Genome Atlas, researchers identified six genes with expression ties to overall survival. MicroRNAs Provide Prognostic Clues in Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma An array-based analysis involving more than two dozen patients led to a miRNA signature associated with overall survival in primary central nervous system lymphoma. Aggressive Meningioma Linked to Transcription Factor Activity The transcription factor FOXM1 marked meningioma cases with poorer outcomes and enhanced cell proliferation, based on integrated exome, expression, and epigenetic profiles. DNA Methylation Data Helps Refine Classification of Central Nervous System Tumors The researchers used DNA methylation profiles to define 82 central nervous system tumor classes, some of which differed from WHO tumor classes.

Survey Sees Genetic Literacy on the Rise, Though Further Education Needed Survey participants appear to have higher genetic familiarity, knowledge, and skills compared to 2013, though 'room for improvement' remains, an AJHG paper finds. Study Reveals Molecular, Clinical Features in Colorectal Cancer Cases Involving Multiple Primary Tumors Researchers compare mismatch repair, microsatellite instability, and tumor mutation burden patterns in synchronous multiple- or single primary colorectal cancers. FarGen Phase One Sequences Exomes of Nearly 500 From Faroe Islands The analysis in the European Journal of Human Genetics finds few rare variants and limited geographic structure among Faroese individuals.
