Genome Analysis Reveals 13 New Alzheimer’s-linked Gene Variants

Using a genetic approach that can “read” the entire human genetic signature, researchers have identified 13 gene variants — or mutations — associated with Alzheimer’s disease risk whose functions are related to neuronal or nerve cell development and connections. Moreover, the scientists said their study establishes new genetic links to neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to change and reorganize over time. This discovery of Alzheimer’s-linked rare gene variants underscores the potential of whole-genome analysis to…
