The NEW TREND: genome-wide association studies (GWAS) with cohorts >1 million (or many millions of) individuals

On 25 Feb 2019, these GEITP pages described “an unprecedented cohort size of more than 1 million”, in which a genome-wide association study (GWAS) was carried out to search for genes (genotype; or genetic architecture) statistically significantly (P

“Origins of Life” have been created by a NASA experiment ???

As these GEITP pages have considered from time to time, how “life” began on Earth is relevant to gene-environment (GxE) interactions — in some ways similar to the relevance of GxE to evolution of life over the past 4+ billion … Continue reading

Separating host and microbiome contributions to drug pharmacokinetics and drug toxicity

These GEITP pages have discussed, on several occasions, the importance of the “brain-gut-microbiome” (i.e. interaction of each patient’s gut bacteria/virus/fungus with intestine AND brain of the same patient). Of all the many ways the ecosystem of microbes (comprising 92% of … Continue reading

Climate Change Reconsidered — Fossil Fuels II

These GEITP pages have covered not only gene-environment interactions but also fraud and corruption involving gene-environment interactions. One such example, often discussed herein, has been the governmental policy to support the Linear No-Threshold (LNT) Model — although experimental evidence is … Continue reading
