Study Suggests Genetic Susceptibility to T2D May Have Shifted with Human Migration | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The apparent genetic risk for type 2 diabetes seems to vary between human populations from different parts of the world, new research suggests, with populations in Africa and East Asia showing particularly pronounced differences in T2D susceptibility.

A pair of papers appearing online yesterday — both led by investigators at Stanford University — outline the approaches and analyses used to reach that conclusion.
