Genes behind serious illnesses discovered - Telegraph
"A dramatic genetic breakthrough has paved the way for potential new treatments of seven common diseases that could help more than 20 million people.
The largest ever study of its kind has found 10 new genes linked to seven of the most common ailments: heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, bipolar disorder and Crohn’s disease.
Some 200 British scientists from 50 research groups collaborated to discover the genes after screening DNA from 17,000 people.
In two years, the £9 million investigation analysed 10 billion pieces of genetic information. "
