Genome-wide association and meta-analyses have uncovered a dozen ADHD-related loci, providing insights into its biology and overlap with other conditions.

A gene-environment analysis involving 10,346 twins suggests parents are more restrictive when feeding children who have a genetic propensity for weight gain.

The researchers hope the datasets from their study can help to explain the effects of disease-associated variants on specific cell types of the immune system.

GWAS summary statistics data led to three main loci with ties to both Alzheimer's and cardiovascular disease, with additional enrichment at lipid-related sites.

At least some variants associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia appeared to contribute to PSA levels in the blood, independent of prostate cancer.

Simulated population data suggests that the lifetime risk of cervical cancer is lower for women who stop screening after a negative DNA test for oncogenic HPV.

With genome-wide association studies involving more than 200,000 individuals, researchers narrowed in on 58 loci and dozens of genes with ties to a chronic infection marker.

Data for nearly 306,500 individuals revealed the impact of independent lifestyle and genetic factors on stroke risk over roughly seven years of follow up.

In a conference call to discuss Q3 earnings, CEO Francis deSouza discussed NIPT, oncology, population sequencing, and consumer genomics as potential growth drivers.

A case-control GWAS of individuals of African descent led to four chromosome 6 SNPs with apparent ties to bleeding risk associated with warfarin anticoagulants.
