More than 200 hundred genes identified for Crohn’s Disease by the Maniatis group at GEE

14 December 2012

Published in The American Journal of Human Genetics, Nik Maniatis and colleagues (PhD student Heather Elding,  post doc Winston Lau and Prof Dallas Swallow) have now used their gene mapping strategy for a genome wide association study.  Using this method  which more precisely maps gene locations and uses fewer samples than current meta-analyses, they have been able to identify a large number of additional genes for Crohn’s Disease, making a total of more than 200.  Notably some of these  appear to have a much stronger effect in a clinical subgroup of patients--another step towards personalised medicine.
