The researchers used the platform, named CRISPR-GO, to study how spatial organization of the genome in the nucleus governs cellular function.

Researchers used fine mapping and other approaches to prioritize proposed coding and non-coding causal variants at rheumatoid arthritis- and type 1 diabetes-linked loci.

Data for hundreds of thousands of participants led to 20 new risk loci for allergic rhinitis, which were further examined by functional annotation and fine mapping.

A Harvard Medical School-led team applied their SNP-seq and FREP approach to identify nearly 150 candidate functional SNPs for juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

Researchers found that functional assays could improve the classification of cystic fibrosis-related missense variants with variable disease expressivity.

Researchers from A*Star and elsewhere have implicated a recessive mutation in CAMK2A in a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting a pair of siblings.

At the ACMG meeting, Cynthia Morton said that several projects, including her team’s SEQaBOO study, are exploring the utility of genomic testing in newborn hearing screening.
