With January officially in the bag, 2015 is off to a great start, especially for some of our customers who have recently published. I wanted to take a minute to share them with you.
- Sander van der Laan at University Medical Center Utrecht, published Variants in ALOX5, ALOX5AP and LTA4H are not associated with atherosclerotic plaque phenotypes: The Athero-Express Genomics Study which assessed the impact of common variants in the mentioned genes on gene expression, circulating protein levels, and atherosclerotic plaque phenotypes.
- Valentina Pilipenko at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center was a co-author on Novel associations between FAAH genetic variants and postoperative central opioid-related adverse effects. The paper explores variability in responses to opioids which is a major clinical problem causing deaths and anoxic brain injuries caused by opioid-induced respiratory depression.
- Ashraf Dallol of King Abdulazia University was a co-author on two publications. First, Characterization of familial breast cancer in Saudi Arabia which investigates the contribution of genetic factors to the development of breast cancer in the admixed and consanguineous population of the western region of Saudi Arabia. And secondly, Exome Sequencing of Normal and Isogenic Transformed Human Colonic Epithelial Cells (HCECs) Reveals Novel Genes Potentially Involved in the Early Stages of Colorectal Tumorigenesis uses whole exome sequencing and bioinformatic analyses to examine the genetic background of a series of isogenically derived immortalized human colonic epithelial cell lines.
- Qingjiong Zhang of Zhongshan University co-authored Evaluation of 12 myopia-associated genes in Chinese patients with high myopia which uses whole exome sequencing to examine whether rare variants in recently identified SNPs contribute to high myopia.
- Kwan Suk Kim of Chungbuk University along with several collaborators published Genome-wide genetic diversity, population structure and admixture analysis in African and Asian cattle breeds which performs a comprehensive GWAS of genetic diversity, population structure and admixture based on 244 animals sampled from 10 cattle populations in Asia and Africa.
