Happenings at the ICDS 15 in Chicago

Kumar Group reported on work on Systemic Annotation of Celiac Disease  loci. Searching for the  single gene in the loci  responsible -- if there is one.  The group started with 39 associated loci,  57 tag SNP and 620 proxy SMP’s  and another 74 protein coding genes.  At this time, 18 genes have been prioritized  for a network analysis  and relate to unknown loci.  The project continues to predisposing and prioritizing cell type with a role in epithelial architecture.
