Computational Genetics: A Massive Step for Neuroscience

Complex brain disorders are highly heritable and largely polygenic. They arise from a complex combination of risk genes, found in […]

What is Non-Genetic Inheritance?

Epigenetic mechanisms are highly complex, diverse and often poorly understood. A recent study, published in Cell, discusses the diverse features […]

The Genetics Of Alzheimer’s: Uncovering new Mechanisms and Drug Targets

An understanding of the environmental and genetic risk of Alzheimer’s Disease is vital for the production of more effective therapies. […]

Genetic differences in ADHD

In a study, published in Scientific Reports, researchers from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, reported key genetic differences in the […]

Understanding genetic variation: An integrated personal and population-based Egyptian genome reference

The power of the Human Genome Project was its universality: one genome to represent all humankind. The next challenge is […]

Genetic modifiers impact long-term survival in sickle cell anaemia

A study published in Clinical and Translational Medicine, has assessed whole-exome sequencing data from sickle cell anaemia patients to identify […]

New International Consortium for Blood Genetics

A new international consortium of blood genetics has been created by a team at the University of Montreal. Unlike previous […]

Novel statistical test for interpreting pathogenicity of rare variants

Researchers have developed a novel statistical test to interpret the pathogenicity of rare variants and accurately distinguish between benign and […]

Polygenic background modifies penetrance of monogenic variants

Researchers have found that polygenic background can modify penetrance of disease in tier 1 genomic conditions. Monogenic variants Monogenic variants […]
