Understanding the link between genetics, cholesterol and coronary artery disease

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, with recent estimates putting the global death toll at around 18 million each year. It is also a major burden on populations and health systems, contributing to... Read more →

The PREDICT Module: Unlocking the power of genomics

In our previous articles on Allelica’s PRS pipeline, we ran through how you can use our DISCOVER module to build your own PRS for a disease or trait of interest, as well as how our VALIDATE module can be used to test the predictive power of... Read more →
