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.
Multi-Ethnic Migraine GWAS Uncovers Risk Loci Specific to Sex, Ancestry
Investigators analyzed genetic data for more than half a million individuals, detecting susceptibility sites specific to women or European individuals.
Ancient European, Pathogen DNA Data Promises to Shed Light on Brain Disorders, Infectious Disease
To understand the evolution of brain conditions and other traits, investigators plan to sequence human and pathogen DNA in thousands of samples from Europe.
Migraine Risk Contributions From Common Variants Supported by New Studies
Along with a polygenic risk score enhanced in migraine sufferers, new research reveals a high-frequency variant implicated in cold adaptation and migraine in Europeans.
Shared Migraine, Heart Disease Risk Variants Emerge From GWAS
Researchers found variants associated with coronary artery disease and migraine risk at three loci in a genome-wide association study, with opposing directional effects at two index SNPs.
