SNP genotyping

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.

Using genome-wide gene association analyses, researchers saw intelligence-related genes and loci overlapping with those in conditions such as schizophrenia.

Researchers saw partial overlap between variants influencing age-related methylation and neuronal patterns and those implicated in other traits or diseases.

Geneticure has raised around $1.1 million to fund the study, which may very well be the largest prospective RCT for personalization of high blood pressure treatment.

In PNAS this week: horizontal gene transfer in grasses, selection patterns in great apes, and more.

Genetic analysis indicated that he was infected with a strain now found in south-central and western Asia.

Backed by €15 million in EU funding, the Ubiquitous Pharmacogenomics Consortium seeks to implement preemptive testing at seven healthcare systems by 2020.

The study also found that esophageal squamous cell carcinomas resemble head and neck cancer, while esophageal adenocarcinomas are similar to gastric cancers.

The company's Keystone platform will have an iPhone-esque application platform for different tools used for forensic DNA data analysis. 

A genome-wide association study meta-analysis that used average principal components to consider composite body shape traits led to six new genetic loci.
