Riken Coronary Artery Disease Loci Identified in Japanese GWAS, Trans-Ancestry Meta-Analysis Researchers found ancestry-specific risk variants and developed a better polygenic risk score based on a GWAS and subsequent meta-analysis. Large-Scale Japanese GWAS Uncovers Two Novel Loci Associated With Lung Cancer, Heart Disease The GWAS of more than 200,000 Japanese individuals across 42 diseases identified 25 novel loci shared between Japanese and European populations. New Studies Compare, Set Benchmarks for Single-Cell RNA Sequencing Methods Premium Both studies emerged from the ongoing Human Cell Atlas project and could help scientists decide on the best approaches to use in various contexts. Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Awards $400K in Funding for Asian Immune Cell Atlas Project The effort is focused on building an atlas of immune cell types found across a range of Asian population groups as part of the Human Cell Atlas project. Breast Cancer GWAS Leads to New Risk Loci in Japanese Population A large genome-wide association in breast cancer cases and controls from Japan led to common variants linked to disease risk at two new and nine known risk loci.

Limited Journal Editor Diversity A survey finds low diversity among scientific and medical journal editors, according to The Scientist. How Much of a Threat? Science writes that need for a provision aimed at shoring up genomic data security within a new US bill is being questioned.
