News Medical: Genome reference database can help predict disease-linked gene variants more accurately

News Medical: Genome reference database can help predict disease-linked gene variants more accurately. “Most diseases have a genetic component. To better understand disease, researchers led by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research are analysing genetic information to determine what keeps us healthy. In a world first, the team has compiled a genome reference database of thousands of healthy older Australians, which has the potential to predict disease-linked gene variants more accurately than has been previously possible.”
