Study links genetic markers with heart attacks:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

In what is claimed to be the largest study of its kind, researchers have identified a region on chromosome 14 that could identify an individual's susceptibility to heart disease. The region identified contains around 150 genes, said the study lead author Dr Ulrich Broeckel, of the Medical College of Wisconsin in the US. "Humans have about 30,000 genes, so narrowing it down to 150 genes is a major step," he said. The findings appear in Nature Genetics (February).
