Happenings at the ICDS 15 in Chicago
Kumar Group reported on work on Systemic Annotation of Celiac Disease loci. Searching for the single gene in the loci responsible -- if there is one. The group started with 39 associated loci, 57 tag SNP and 620 proxy SMP’s and another 74 protein coding genes. At this time, 18 genes have been prioritized for a network analysis and relate to unknown loci. The project continues to predisposing and prioritizing cell type with a role in epithelial architecture.
