Targeted Sequencing of GWAS Loci for Cleft Lip

by Daniel Koboldt in Massgenomics

In the last decade, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) enabled by cheap, high-throughput SNP genotyping have identified thousands of loci that influence disease susceptibility, quantitative traits, and other complex phenotypes. The genetic markers on high-density SNP arrays are carefully chosen to capture (or “tag”) most common haplotypes in human populations. Common SNPs tend to be more […]... Read more »

Work harder by remembering you don't have to work

by Katharine Blackwell in Contemplating Cognition

What things will you do this week, not because you particularly want to, but because you feel you have to? For many people, this probably includes everything work related, from waking up early in the morning, to gritting teeth through a rush hour commute, to trying to stay awake through a particularly torturous meeting. Whatever obligation you are dreading this week, would it help you get through it if you remembered that, strictly speaking, you don’t have to do it?... Read more »

The “Backfire Effect”: Correcting false beliefs about vaccines can be surprisingly counterproductive

by BPS Research Digest in BPS Research Digest

Nearly half of the US population wrongly believes the flu vaccine can give you flu,but correcting this error has the opposite of the desired effectBy guest blogger Simon OxenhamAccording to a new study, 43 per cent of the US population wrongly believes that the flu vaccine can give you flu. In actual fact this is not the case – any adverse reaction, besides a temperature and aching muscles for a short time, is rare. It stands to reason that correcting this misconception would be a good move fo........ Read more »

Late, delayed and mis-diagnosis of autism

by Paul Whiteley in Questioning Answers

It's inevitable that with all the mountains of autism research published on a daily basis, certain themes will occur at certain times. My post today is reflective of one of those themes and how, on occasion, the autism diagnostic process does not run as smoothly as we would all like to think.I start this post with a link to an article discussing some forthcoming research to be published titled: 'The autistic pupils ‘traumatised’ by delayed diagnosis'. Describing the results of a survey of pa........ Read more »

Yes, autism is on the rise. Read this before blaming vaccines.

by EE Giorgi in CHIMERAS

Waiting for the rain, © EEGBecause I work on HIV vaccine design, lately I've often been involved in debates concerning the safety of vaccines. I have the greatest respect for parents who struggle with disabilities of any kind, especially in children. I'm a parent too and can't even imagine what life is like when your child has a permanent disability. But I'm also a scientist, and I believe in the good cause of my work. My boss has been working day and night for thirty years on a vaccine again........ Read more »
