A spontaneous coronary condition that is overrepresented in young women had a polygenic risk score linked to lower-than-usual atherosclerosis-related heart disease risk.

Two new papers have identified thousands of genetic loci with ties to more than two-dozen blood cell traits in individuals from up to five ancestry groups.

The next iteration of Ancestry's Health experience seeks to provide customers with actionable information about certain commonly inherited health conditions.

Using array-based genotyping profiles for COVID-19 cases and controls, researchers identified loci on chromosomes 3 and 9 that are linked to cases with respiratory failure.

A genome-wide association study on hundreds of thousands of women with or without breast cancer implicated 32 new risk loci, including sites associated with specific subtypes.

A GWAS that incorporated magnetic resonance imaging data for UK Biobank participants led to 45 previously undetected risk loci related to dilated cardiomyopathy.

The group said the recommendations aim to standardize and improve warfarin response genotyping assays.

With UK Biobank and FinnGenn data, researchers tracked down rare changes in the angiopoietin-like 7 gene that coincide with lower glaucoma and intraocular pressure risk.

Researchers used case and control genotypes alongside related trait, transcriptome, and population data to identify 85 cutaneous melanoma candidate loci.

A more accurate, integrated risk model for pancreatic cancer included not only clinical risk factors, but also blood markers and pancreatic cancer loci from genome-wide association studies.
