Predicting the probability of death

Scientists from deCODE genetics have developed a predictor based on protein measurements in blood samples that predicts  the time to all-cause  death better than traditional risk factors. In a paper published today in Communications Biology, scientists from deCODE...

Rounding off the human genome

 In a study published today, scientists at deCODE Genetics demonstrate for the first time how long-read DNA sequencing can be applied at population scale to unravel large structural variants that associate with human disease and other traits. In a paper...

Monozygous but not identical

By sequencing the germline genomes of twins and comparing them to those of close relatives, scientists at deCODE genetics found mutations that are present in just one of the monozygotic twins and traced them back to the first days after conception. In the article,...
