Researchers have conducted a multi-ancestry GWAS of lipid levels in around 1.65 million individuals, including 350,000 individuals of non-European descent. […]

ASHG 2021: Workforce diversity in genomics

This week (18 – 22nd October 2021), the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) hosted their annual meeting. The meeting had a wide […]

Genetic basis of childhood liver cancer diversity

Hepatoblastoma is the most common liver cancer in children. However, the hereditary predisposition and acquired molecular aberrations related to the […]

The diversity of cancer targets

Here we summarise a recent paper, published in Cell, that explored the landscape of therapeutic cancer targets beyond the list […]

Tractor: New tool facilitates diversity in genetic studies

Researchers have developed a free-access software tool called Tractor that increases the discovery power of genomics in understudied populations.  Diverse […]

Exploring the Vast Diversity of African Genetics

Characterising genomic variation across Africa is critical to understanding human biology. Recently, there has been a shift in focus, in […]

Single-cell copy number profiling unveils the genetic diversity of cancer

The genetic information of a cancerous tumour is typically obtained by sequencing the tumour cells together, rather than analysing them […]

Genetics Unzipped podcast: Out of Africa – uncovering history and diversity in the human genome

In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped presenter Kat Arney takes a virtual trip to Africa to explore the genetic […]

New tool merges single cell RNA-Seq and spatial data

A team has developed a new tool, called cell2location, that can resolve fine-grained cell types in spatial transcriptomic data. Spatial […]
