Genetic overlap between metabolites and migraines

Researchers have conducted a comprehensive genetic analysis to estimate the polygenic genetic overlap between 316 unique blood metabolite levels and […]

Researchers uncover risk variants for vertigo

In a recent genome-wide meta-analysis, researchers identified six sequence variants that confer risk of vertigo. The inner ear and vertigo […]

Can we be genetically predisposed to psychiatric disease and addiction?

A recent study, published in NeuroResource, has used single-nucleus transcriptome analysis to identify cell-type-specific molecular signatures in the brain that […]

Does genomics hold the key for African cancer care?

Researchers recently explored whether the genetic landscape of tumours could be captured through blood collection in African women with breast […]

Longevity pathways identified in exome analysis of centenarians

Non-human model organisms have provided evidence to suggest that rare protein-coding variants in pathways linked to longevity can guard against […]

Schizophrenia polygenic risk scores: The struggle of improving their clinical utility

Researchers have analysed clinical and genetic data from over 8,500 adults with psychiatric disorders, to assess whether schizophrenia polygenic risk […]

New method could advance genomics-driven precision medicine

In a recent study, an international team has found thousands of new regulatory regions that control the expression of disease-linked […]

Researchers find novel genes associated with diabetic kidney disease

Over the last few years, our understanding of diabetic kidney disease (DKD) has rapidly developed. However, there is still little […]

Blood cell ratios correlate with leukaemia risk

A new study, published in the American Journal of Human Genetics, has reported that genetically induced shifts in blood cell […]

Analysis of 1.5 million people identifies genes related to antisocial behaviours

A new study, published in Nature Neuroscience, has analysed data from 1.5 million people to identify genes underlying behaviours related […]
