Preprint Study Offers Glimpse of Solution to Missing Heritability Problem

Since the beginning of the genomics era, the “missing heritability” problem has plagued researchers. Now, a non-peer-reviewed preprint paper uploaded on the bioRiv server suggests rare variations in genes could explain height or weight better than the most common variants. The study is a significant step “towards understanding the question of missing heritability,” Bogdan Pasaniuc, an assistant … Read more Preprint Study Offers Glimpse of Solution to Missing Heritability Problem
