Zeroing in on Heart Disease: Innovative Strategy Pinpoints Genes Underlying Cardiovascular Disease Risk, University of Heidelberg and European Molecular Biology Laboratory Study



3/1/2013 7:44:05 AM

Studies screening the genome of hundreds of thousands of individuals (known as Genome-wide association studies or GWAS) have linked more than 100 regions in the genome to the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Researchers from the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and the University of Heidelberg, through the joint Molecular Medicine Partnership Unit (MMPU), are taking these results one step further by pinpointing the exact genes that could have a role in the onset of the disease.
