(Okay, well really, they started working on it before 7.4 even came out.) While the full details of 7.5 are… Read more »

Summary and Q&A: “A Genome-wide Comparison of the Functional Properties of Rare and Common Genetic Variants in Humans”

The common disease-common variant hypothesis has established the foundation of SNP-basis genome-wide association studies for the last several years. However, with few strong associations found, researchers are beginning to consider the effects of rare variants through the burgeoning availability of DNA sequencing. Qianqian Zhu and Dongliang Ge, of the Center for Human Genome Variation at Duke University, and others recently… Read more »
