New Paper! An examination of 296,215 cases across 6 solid cancer types highlights some shared common germline genetic basis, suggesting that some cancers could be studied together to better understand the biological pathways that lead to cancer (Jiang et al. 2019).
New Paper! Our latest work with the Price Lab uses polygenic functional enrichment to incorporate coding, conserved, regulatory, and LD-related genomic annotations into association analyses (Kichaev et al. 2019).
