Emerging applications of genome-editing technology to examine functionality of GWAS-associated variants for complex traits.
Over the last decade, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have propelled the discovery of thousands of loci associated with complex diseases. The focus is now turning toward the function of these association signals, ...
The genetic architecture of type 2 diabetes
CNV-association meta-analysis in 191,161 European adults reveals new loci associated with anthropometric traits.
There are few examples of robust associations between rare copy number variants (CNVs) and complex continuous human traits. Here we present a large-scale CNV association meta-analysis on anthropometric traits in up to ...
Meta-analysis of up to 622,409 individuals identifies 40 novel smoking behaviour associated genetic loci.
(Springer Nature, 2019-01-07)
Smoking is a major heritable and modifiable risk factor for many diseases, including cancer, common respiratory disorders and cardiovascular diseases. Fourteen genetic loci have previously been associated with smoking ...
