diabetes Broad Institute, Novo Nordisk Foundation Launch Center to Study Genomic Mechanisms of Disease The center, which is being funded by a $47.5 million commitment from the foundation, will initially focus on type 2 diabetes and obesity. Rare Mutations Associated With Significantly Higher Risk of Type 2 Diabetes in New Study University of Cambridge and Broad Institute researchers found what could be a direct connection between clonal mosaicism and metabolic health. Type 1 Diabetes GWAS, Fine-Mapping Leads to New Genetic Loci, Potential Drug Targets Starting with a large GWAS, researchers incorporated chromatin accessibility data and other clues to find key variants, immune cell types, and treatment targets. GWAS Across Ancestries Uncovers Novel Genetic Loci Linked to Glycemic Traits The researchers estimated that if their analysis had only focused on individuals of European descent, they would have missed two dozen novel loci.
