Data from almost 19,500 individuals did not show clear ties between a heterozygous mutation in the HBB hemoglobin beta gene and ischemic stroke risk.

The team used genetic scoring to identify infants without a family history of the disease who had more than a 10 percent risk for developing islet antibodies.

The researchers used UK Biobank data to identify loci linked to depression and identify gene sets involved in excitatory neurotransmission and mechanosensory behavior.

The international team of researchers uncovered more than 100 loci, mostly novel, through their analysis of a cohort of nearly 300,000 people.

The test is designed to identify a tumor's tissue of origin by assessing 2,000 individual genes and covers 15 common tumor types.
