gene-environment interaction studies

Investigators tracked down a methylation signature in blood that corresponded with features found in postmortem brain samples from schizophrenia cases.

A gene-environment study involving more than 18,000 individuals suggests jogging and other forms of exercise may modify the genetic risk for obesity.

The genetic risk of schizophrenia is influenced by early-life complications and the placenta differentially expresses these complication-linked genes, a new study says.

In PLOS this week: gene-environment interactions affecting BMI, transposon mutagenesis study of UTI-linked bacteria, and more.

In Genome Research this week: population patterns in rhesus macaque, LTR retroposition conserved, and more.

The findings could lead to a more personalized approach for preventing asthma in children, the researchers suggested.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Pennsylvania State University researchers have been awarded a $3.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study changes in DNA methylation (DM) and telomere length (TL) in children that are potentially related to social environments.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institutes of Health expects to spend as much as $31.7 million to support a genomics consortium in Africa, specifically by funding research projects, enhancing the continent's 'omics talent pool, building up its science infrastructure, and connecting studi

NIDA and NIAAA will fund grants to dive into the ways that gene-environment interactions are involved in substance use disorders and treatments.

A new report from an NIDDK committee advises that genetics and genomics research should be a critical component of diabetes research efforts.
