Scientists from deCODE genetics have mapped 243 sequence variants affecting fetal growth, separating maternal genome and fetal genome. It sheds light on the relationships between hypertension, diabetes and fetal growth. Valgerdur Steinthorsdottir, Kari Stefansson and...
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,...
Scientists at deCODE genetics have found a variant that protects against nasal polyps and chronic rhinosinusitis. The study was published on the 14th of January in the online edition of Nature genetics. Nasal polyps are non-malignant, typically bilateral growths on...
