Using data for more than 500,000 individuals, researchers found 15 fracture-linked loci and saw genetic interactions between fracture and bone mineral density.

Using genotype and phenotype data from the UK Biobank project, a Stanford investigator uncovered variants linked to low bone mineral density.

More than 200 bone mineral density-linked loci turned up using data for over 140,000 individuals, including 153 new loci.

A genome-wide association study involving more than 20,000 individuals from Iceland uncovered new and known genetic associations with bone mineral density.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases plans to use up to $2.4 million next year to fund the creation of several core centers that will support scientists studying the underlying biology of muscle and bones and the range of disorders
