Featured publication: Low-Frequency and Rare-Coding Variation Contributes to Multiple Sclerosis Risk
In a large multi-cohort study, performed by the International Multiple Sclerosis Genetics Consortium (IMSGC) and published in Cell Magazine, unexplained heritability for multiple sclerosis (MS) is detected in low-frequency coding variants that are missed by genome-wide association study (GWAS) analyses, further underscoring the role of immune genes in MS pathology. The IMSGC was formed in […]...more
