Genetics of Stroke: The Impact and Limitations of Evolving Technology

Stroke: June 1, 2013

There have been advances in understanding the molecular underpinnings of risk and response to stroke hailing from genetic research. Traditional linkage studies were limited to identifying genetic mutations, representing small fractions of human disease burden. Yet with large-scale genotyping, RNA expression studies and microRNA analyses, modern genetic research has opened the possibility of understanding the greater complexity of variation.  Read more
