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 […]

Multi-omics: Exploring Inside Cells

Introduction Multi-omics is an emerging field. ‘Omics’ refers to the comprehensive collection of a set of biological molecules. Essentially, the […]

Multi-omics integration analysis uncovers genes driving alcoholism

A new study, published in Nature Communications, has used a multi-omics systems approach to identify genes underlying alcohol use disorders. […]

Lack of productivity in biopharma R&D

During the past 70 years, advances in many scientific and technological areas should have dramatically raised the productivity of biopharma […]

New framework links disease SNPs to target genes

A new study has combined SNP-to-gene linking strategies to pinpoint genes that drive disease. The developed framework has identified novel […]
