Clonal Hematopoiesis Longitudinal Study Reveals High-Risk Mutations for Developing Cancer
A study of blood DNA samples from almost 3,400 adults over 60 years of age highlighted how different clonal mutations affect the risk of developing blood cancers.
Host Genetics Affect Makeup of Gut Microbiome, With Influence From Diet, Studies Find
Researchers conducted genome-wide association studies of bacterial taxa and human genetic variation from within the Dutch Microbiome Project and FINRISK 2002 cohorts.
Consortium Catalogs Variants Affecting Blood Gene Expression
Members of the eQTLGen Consortium turned to data for almost 31,700 individuals to define local and distant expression quantitative trait loci affecting gene expression in the blood.
Microbial Fingerprints, Health Insights Gleaned From Individual Gut Microbiome Dynamics
With gut microbiome data for individuals sampled four years apart, researchers saw stable and unstable gut microbial species, including those linked to host phenotypes.
