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 […]
