Exome array-wide association and rare variant-focused genome-wide association meta-analyses led to 87 rare variants with ties to one or more blood pressure traits.

An analysis of biobank data from Japan, the UK, and Finland found the link between obesity and lifespan was stronger among individuals with European ancestry.

With exome sequences for tens of thousands of Finns, researchers identified deleterious variants linked to dozens of clinically relevant quantitative traits.

Though the test is already commercially available, the firm met with the FDA last year to discuss plans for a randomized controlled trial to support regulatory approval.

Researchers documented genetic associations, trait heritability, and more with data from GWAS on 778 binary or non-binary traits in UK Biobank participants.

Using data from the UK Biobank, researchers explored relative contributions that genetics and lifestyle make to cardiovascular disease and diabetes risk.

The researchers said that examining the FGF21 allele could cast light on potential adverse and beneficial effects of therapies that target the gene.

With the help of electronic health record data, researchers searched for common variants linked to hundreds of diseases or clinical lab measurements.

Through a genome-wide association study and meta-analysis, researchers saw dozens of new and known blood pressure loci, including ancestry-specific associations.

Independent research teams identified mutations in a chloride ion channel gene in some cases of aldosteronism, a condition that can cause severe hypertension.
