migraine 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 Premium 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. Three Dozen Migraine Susceptibility Loci Uncovered in Large Meta-Analysis The analysis also indicates that vascular and smooth muscle tissues contribute to migraine pathophysiology.

Preprints OK to Mention Again Nature News reports the Australian Research Council has changed its new policy and now allows preprints to be cited in grant applications. Hundreds of Millions More to Share The US plans to purchase and donate 500 million additional SARS-CoV-2 vaccine doses, according to the Washington Post.
