  • Wu, Lang; PEGASUS Consortium (Nature Research, 2020)
    It remains elusive whether some of the associations identified in genome-wide association studies of prostate cancer (PrCa) may be due to regulatory effects of genetic variants on CpG sites, which may further influence ...
  • COVID-19 Host Genetics Initiative (Nature Research, 2021)
    The genetic make-up of an individual contributes to the susceptibility and response to viral infection. Although environmental, clinical and social factors have a role in the chance of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 and the severity ...
