Functional genetic variation in humans: comprehensive map published

Geuvadis RNA seq study European scientists, led by researchers from the University of Geneva’s Faculty of Medicine (UNIGE) in the GEUVADIS project, present a map that points to the genetic causes of differences between people. The study, published in Nature and Nature Biotechnology, offers the largest-ever dataset linking human genomes to gene activity at the level of RNA. Understanding how each person’s unique genome makes them more or less susceptible to disease is one of the biggest…
