News on microarrays, multiplexing, genotyping, cytogenetics, gene expression profiling in genetics, genomics, and molecular diagnostics.

Results from some 4,200 GWAS suggest a significant subset of genetic loci contribute to multiple complex traits, though the type of overlap further varied at the gene and SNP levels.

Researchers focused on candidate genes near expression quantitative trait loci identified by combining cancer susceptibility SNPs and available transcriptomic data.

A gene-environment study involving more than 18,000 individuals suggests jogging and other forms of exercise may modify the genetic risk for obesity.

In European American military veterans, the study led to several genetic loci with ties to the severity of a core PTSD symptom known as reexperiencing.

Researchers identified a new type 2 diabetes-associated site involving the ZRANB3 gene, which may have a role in regulating pancreatic beta cells.

The US National Institutes of Health's All of Us project awarded $4.6 million to the company Color to develop a genetic counseling resource for the program.

The Times of India reports on a pilot study that used genomic testing to determine whether patients had drug-resistant tuberculosis.

New guidelines say that more women may benefit from genetic testing for hereditary breast or ovarian cancer, according to the Los Angeles Times.
