In PNAS this week: features linked to coronavirus pathogenicity, multi-system syndrome linked to RNA modification-linked mutations, and more.

The researchers combined a linkage analysis followed by whole-genome sequencing data to link the DLC1 gene to blood oxygen levels during sleep.

With long-read sequencing, mapping, and other approaches, researchers assembled a high-quality genome for Aedes aegypti, a notorious infectious disease vector.

Based on the results, RAB10 could be a promising therapeutic target for the prevention of Alzheimer's.

Researchers applied a SNP heritability model called LDAK to genetic data for a range of human traits, uncovering relatively high levels of variance explained by SNPs.
