We are kicking off the second quarter with a round of recent customer publications. There are a few new faces represented below, and we are delighted to share their success with you. We hope you find their research as interesting as we do!
- Peter Harris of Mayo Clinic and colleagues published PKD2-Related Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease: Prevalence, Clinical Presentation, Mutation Spectrum, and Prognosis in the American Journal of Kidney Diseases which aimed to use the Genkyst cohort to revisit PKD2 and bolster the population-based studies depicting the exact burden of the disease.
- In the International Journal of Hematology, Wasun Chantratita of the Ramathibodi Hospital and colleagues published Exome sequencing for simultaneous mutation screening in children with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis which used exome sequencing to identify rare genetic variants in HLH patients.
- Genome-wide Association Analysis Tracks Bacterial Leaf Blight Resistance Loci In Rice Diverse Germplasm was published in Rice by Christine Jade Dilla-Ermita of the International Rice Research Institute. This study used a GWAS of bacterial blight resistance to identify loci associated with it, as well as useful molecular markers for marker-assisted breeding.
- El Hamidi Hay of the USDA, along with a colleague, published Genomic prediction and genome-wide association analysis of female longevity in a composite beef cattle breed in the Journal of Animal Science which evaluated the genomic prediction of longevity and identified the genomic regions associated with this trait.
