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 […]

The Shared Genetic Basis of Neuropsychiatric Disorders

A recent study has demonstrated that there are substantial similarities in the structural phenotypes of different neuropsychiatric disorders. Furthermore, they […]

Biomarkers found in sperm linked to autism

Biomarkers in human sperm have been found to indicate a propensity to autism spectrum disorder in the fathers’ offspring. Autism […]

Genomics week in brief: Week ending 9th January

Another week, another genomics week in brief – filled with the latest news and research from the genomics space. Top […]

Improving polygenic risk scores

Existing genome-wide association studies have been predominantly conducted in individuals of European descent. In turn, this has limited the transferability […]

Overlapping genetic association in type I and type II diabetes

Due to the potential shared aetiology between type I and type II diabetes, researchers recently aimed to identify any genetic […]

A New Genetic Link to Childhood Asthma

Asthma with severe exacerbation is the most common reason for the hospitalisation of young children. These exacerbations are generally triggered […]

A New Blood-Based Model for Dementia

There are nearly 50 million people living with dementia globally. Furthermore, ~50-70% of all dementia cases are caused by Alzheimer’s […]

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 […]

Genetics of penicillin allergy

Researchers have reported the first robust piece of evidence for the role of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) gene HLA-B […]
