Researchers linked 16 genetic loci to diabetic kidney disease, including a common missense mutation in the COL4A3 gene that appears to be protective.
Different biological processes appear to drive body mass index during infancy and later in childhood and adulthood, which could inform obesity prevention strategies.
A genomic analysis of ancient and modern samples revealed population clusters and ancestral contributions stemming from historical migrations and admixture events.
Researchers uncovered six clusters among the more than 2,500 individuals they analyzed and noted varying degrees of Norse Viking ancestry in their cohort.
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.
NPR says the explosion and fire earlier this week at a Russian lab that stores dangerous pathogens revives the question of whether such samples should be kept.
According to Wired, Nebula Genomics is providing a way for people to get their genomes sequenced anonymously.
A 26-year-old woman tells Cosmopolitan about learning her APOE status at a young age.
In Science journals this week: a functional genomic screen uncovers drug combination that increases KRAS inhibitor efficacy in aggressive lung cancer, and more.
CAR T-cell therapy is an innovative form of immunotherapy that is finding increasing use for the management of blood cancers.
This webinar will discuss a study that used spatial transcriptomics to gain insight into the molecular mechanisms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive neurodegenerative disease.
