genetic variation and lung cancer

Variation in the human genome and the consequences for health are giving exciting result, largely through genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Such studies need to be large and repeatable.. Since early 2007, variations at nearly 100 regions of the genome have been associated with an increased risk for diseases with a complex genetic background, such as…

human genetic variaiton mapping

The large studies of human genetic variation have concentrated on understanding the pattern and nature of single- nucleotide differences within the human genome. There are larger polymorphisms for example insertions, deletions and inversions, Which leaves much to be studied .in human structural genetic variation. The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI propose to sequence large-insert…
