Induced pluripotent stem cells reveal causes of disease

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) are suitable for discovering the genes that underly complex, rare genetic diseases. Scientists from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory ...

Overlooked cilium could be genetic key to common diseases

Until recently, scientists believed that the primary cilium—an antenna-like structure found on the surface of most human cells—was largely vestigial and had little bearing on the day-to-day lives of human beings. But ...

First multi-whole-genome study of IBD in African Americans

In African Americans, the genetic risk landscape for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is very different from that of people with European ancestry, according to results of the first whole-genome study of IBD in African Americans. ...
