The Estonian Genome Center aims to introduce genomic medicine via the country's online medical data infrastructure, according to Andres Metspalu, its director.

With exome sequencing data on nearly 10,000 individuals with or without early-onset myocardial infarction, researchers narrowed in on two genes prone to rare mutations in those at enhanced heart attack risk.

A retrospective study of patients seen over two years at the emergency department of Sweden's Karolinska University Hospital has demonstrated that using a very low cutoff point when measuring the protein biomarker cardiac troponin T could accurately rule out heart attack in a lar
