For several decades, the risk for known that the risk for heart attack – the leading cause of death and disability in the U.S. – clusters in families and that some of this familial clustering is due to differences in the DNA sequence, says Sekar Kathiresan, director of preventive cardiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and corresponding author of the Nature Genetics report. We wanted one specific letter differences in the genome, as single-nucleotide polomorphisms , which may be found responsible for an increased familial risk for heart attack. Developed the current study used a number of scientific instruments in the last decade, including haplotype haplotype map, a comprehensive map of SNPs the genome, genotyping arrays, hundreds of thousands of hundreds of thousands of SNPs at once, and a gene chip by Altshuler team team simulaneously for SNPs and copy number variants developed – deletions or duplications of gene segments some kind of change associated with several disease categories.
