Whole-genome sequencing used to track down genes behind familial glioma

A team of gene therapists, oncologists, genetic sequencing experts and neurosurgeons affiliated with a host of institutions in the U.S. and one in Sweden has uncovered gene variants that appear to be responsible for passing on familial glioma from parent to offspring. In their study, reported in the journal Science Advances, the group sequenced the genomes of members of glioma-affected families.
