exome arrays Rare Variant Study Suggests Blood Pressure Traits May Have Ties to Development, Heart Conditions Exome array-wide association and rare variant-focused genome-wide association meta-analyses led to 87 rare variants with ties to one or more blood pressure traits. Pediatric Oncologists Employing Variety of Sequencing Strategies for Treatment, Research Premium Though some experts prefer the comprehensive nature of whole-genome sequencing, others find whole-exome sequencing or targeted exome panels to be more useful. Dozens of Variants Linked to Body Fat Distribution in Exome-Wide Analysis Researchers from the Genetics Investigation of Anthropometric Traits consortium tied loci in lipid homeostasis and other pathways to differences in waist-to-hip ratio. Exome Analysis Links Three Variants to Pancreatic Cancer in Chinese Population One of the variants leads to increased phosphorylation of a signaling pathway as well as to increased cell proliferation, hinting at how it contributes to disease risk. Esophageal Cancer GWAS Leads to Low-Frequency Risk Variants Exome sequences from thousands of Chinese individuals with or without esophageal squamous cell carcinoma led to six new germline risk variants.
