Using array-based genotyping profiles for COVID-19 cases and controls, researchers identified loci on chromosomes 3 and 9 that are linked to cases with respiratory failure.

Led by investigators at the University of Oslo, the four-year CoMorMent project is slated to commence next month with a total budget of €6 million.

The researchers profiled 44 cancer-related genes in 191 individuals with familial breast cancer, colorectal cancer, or other forms of early-onset cancer.

Researchers found variants associated with coronary artery disease and migraine risk at three loci in a genome-wide association study, with opposing directional effects at two index SNPs.
