Researchers Discover Important Genetic Variant Linked to Breast Cancer Risk
shutterstock_227848060A study published in the latest edition of the journal Human Molecular Genetics used fine-mapping analysis of genetic data to assess the association between individual genetic variations among patients and their susceptibility to being diagnosed with breast cancer (BC).  The study, entitled Fine-mapping identifies two additional breast cancer susceptibility loci at 9q31.2 was led by investigators from the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), London, in collaboration with 130 teams of researchers across the globe. The international collaborative team of investigators utilized a standardized method of genetic analysis to make an important discovery in the mechanisms of BC oncogenesis. Fine-mapping is a method of analysis used to distinguish variants in a large number of single nu
