SNP genotyping

The researchers found evidence of genetic continuity in Anatolia, even as the subsistence strategy changed from hunting and gathering to farming.

Investigators calculated that the new assay, which includes 67 SNPs, could offer a 50 percent improvement over previous methods if used in newborn screening.

The firm's lab subsidiary Phenogen will provide genotyping to study the impact on women's decisions to undergo prophylactic surgery.

The researchers generated a skull shape score and applied it to a European ancestry cohort to tease out introgressed Neanderthal DNA linked to head shape.

A GWAS meta-analysis involving hundreds of thousands of cases and controls led to new and known gallstone disease-associated variants at 28 loci.

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

A Mendelian analysis hints that variants implicated in bitter taste perception may affect a person's preference for coffee, tea, and/or alcohol.

Given that genetic susceptibility to schizophrenia is highly polygenic, the researchers found that the risk scores had some utility as prognostic biomarkers.

The team uncovered more than 200 sites in the human genome that were differentially methylated based on parent of origin, including areas linked to disease.

The Belgian company also provided an update on its flagship PCR analysis software and outlined current and future business endeavors.
