GWAS

By uncovering genetic factors behind blood and urine biomarkers, researchers came up with polygenic scores related to biomarker status and related disease risk.

The findings further suggested the gut microbiome could influence conditions like inflammatory bowel disease and serve as therapeutic targets.
