Multi-Ethnic Migraine GWAS Uncovers Risk Loci Specific to Sex, Ancestry
Investigators analyzed genetic data for more than half a million individuals, detecting susceptibility sites specific to women or European individuals.
The integration on the Microsoft Azure cloud is helping Kaiser make its vast genomics dataset available to a wider pool of researchers.
Actionable Mutation Analysis Reveals Germline Risk in Older CRC Patients
The team saw risky mutations in colorectal cancer, polyp, and Lynch syndrome-related genes in almost 4 percent of CRC patients diagnosed at 72 years old, on average.
Combining Electronic Health Records, GWAS Data Uncovers Variants Linked to Blood Lipid Levels
Researchers also combined the 121 SNPs they found with pharmacy data to develop a risk score to predict when patients would start lipid-lowering treatments.
At the Precision Medicine World Conference this week, researchers discussed how they plan to return genomic results to participants of research-focused sequencing studies.
