Genome data provides support for link to thyroid cancer

October 21, 2017

Recent findings from a large international genetic database provided new insight on genetic mutations known to cause thyroid cancer, according to a press release from Princeton University.

The Genotype-Tissue Expression Consortium is an ongoing study of the human genome that links genetic variation to gene regulation in 44 tissue types. In a recent study, Barbara Engelhardt, PhD, an assistant professor of computer science at Princeton University, and colleagues mapped associations between genetic variants and gene expression levels on different chromosomes, in a process known as trans-expression quantitative trait loci (trans-eQTLs).
