Using data for nearly 59,000 UK Biobank participants, researchers identified genes and pathways involved in heart rate variability, exercise response, and exercise recovery.

The researchers found that genetically predicted increases in heart rate were associated with shortened lifespans.

Researchers identified some 1.9 million structural variants using whole-genome sequence data from 250 families profiled for the Genome of the Netherlands project.

Researchers demonstrated that Strand-seq directional single-cell sequencing can be used to assemble consensus chromosome haplotypes for an individual.

Researchers used single-cell sequencing to uncover karyotype heterogeneity within mouse and human cancers and predicted that it might be linked to outcomes.

Universities and research institutes are making CRISPR/Cas9 more accessible than ever through new and existing core facilities.

Researchers are studying the impacts of implementing multi-gene preconception carrier screening in the Netherlands, where such testing has been prohibited. 

A pair of Science studies reports that antibiotics, diet, gender, and age can influence the composition of the gut microbiome to varying degrees.

An international team has sequenced the Zostera marina genome to uncover gene gains and losses that helped it in its return to the sea.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – In a study appearing online yesterday in Nature Genetics, researchers sifted through thousands of genome-wide association study risk loci to find those influencing the expression of far-off genes.
