GWAS

A genome-wide association study links more than 40 genes associated with being left handed, Psychology Today reports.

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.

Researchers compared schizophrenia genetic risk loci in individuals from East Asian and European populations, uncovering many shared features.

Researchers documented population structure, ancestry patterns, trait associations, and more with variants found in the genomes of more than 6,400 Ugandans.

Researchers have tied nearly 200 candidate genes, including ones involved in neurodevelopment, apoptosis, and inflammation, to the volume of brain structures.

According to simulations and a study of large families presented at ASHG this week, current polygenic scores cannot accurately predict complex human traits.

The search uncovered two post-traumatic stress disorder loci in Europeans and a third in individuals with African ancestry, highlighting immune- and brain-related genes.

In PNAS this week: cell line to assay myotonic dystrophy type 1 therapies, gene involved in rice architecture, and more.

The results of the study, which involved more than 47,000 MS patients and 68,000 unaffected controls, explain almost half of the disease's estimated heritability.

The researchers conducted genome-wide association studies of individuals who reported hearing difficulties and those who used hearing aids.
