Research: Alzheimer's risk is concentrated in macrophage and microglial networks

Integration of GWAS results with sites of open chromatin identifies immune cells as likely mediators of common variant genetic risk for Alzheimer’s disease.

Research: NSAID use and exomic mutations in Barrett’s esophagus

NSAID use limits overall mutations on which selection can act and specific mutant cell populations survive or expand better in the absence of NSAIDs.

Review: Recurrent de novo mutations in neurodevelopmental disorders: properties and clinical implications

Eichler and colleagues discuss advances in our understanding of recurrent de novo mutations and the associated genetics of neurodevelopmental disorders.

Video abstract: A new blood test uses DNA methylation to detect and predict the spread of breast cancer

A study by Widschwendter and colleagues suggests that serum DNAme markers can diagnose fatal breast cancers up to one year in advance of current diagnosis and enable individualized  treatment which may even commence before obtaining radiological evidence – see the video abstract for a graphic summary of the paper.
