Pathogenic Germline Structural Variants May Be Missed by Some Testing Approaches Researchers at Color Health reported that intronic data is needed to uncover pathogenic structural variants linked to hereditary cancers or cardiovascular disorders. Neanderthal Population Replacement Detected Using Spanish Cave Sediments Nuclear and mitochondrial sequences from sediment samples pointed to two Neanderthal radiations, as well as a population replacement, in northern Spain. Ancient Sequencing Studies Provide Look at Early Modern Human Populations in Europe A pair of new studies focus on two modern human populations with recent Neanderthal mixing that lived in Europe around 45,000 or more years ago. Renal Cell Carcinoma Risk Gene Representation Can Vary With Ancestry While risky variants in the FH gene were more common in renal cell carcinoma patients with African ancestry, European patients more often carried pathogenic CHEK2 gene changes.
