New research findings from IGP
Correlation found between loss of chromosome Y and genetic instability
In an international collaboration, researchers from IGP have shown that loss of chromosome Y in the blood in men can function as an indicator of genetic instability, which in turn can affect the susceptibility for cancer in other parts of the body. The study has been published in the journal Nature.
Analysis using whole genome sequencing gives more accuracy
A new study from IGP shows that whole genome sequencing contributes to increasing the accuracy in genetic studies, which in turn can improve the understanding of how biomarkers can be used to discover diseases. The results are published in the scientific journal Scientific Reports.
Mechanism for the formation of new blood vessels discovered
In a new study published in the journal EMBO Reports, researchers from IGP show for the first time a mechanism for how new blood vessels are formed and the importance of this mechanism for embryo survival and organ function. The results could be developed to control the formation of new blood vessels in different diseases.
