A genome-wide association study of nearly 60 quantitative traits highlighted the links between genes, clinical measurements, and disease.

Adverse Eye Effect

Riken researchers conducting a trial of an iPS cell treatment of age-related macular degeneration say a patient experienced swelling, according to the Japan Times.

Such an atlas could enable investigators to understand how genetic variants impact disease risk, define drug toxicities, improve therapies, and advance regenerative medicine.
