Announcing the genetic and genomic map of multiple sclerosis

It is a great privilege to publish today in Science the genetic and genomic map of multiple sclerosis on behalf of the International Multiple Sclerosis Genetics Consortium (IMSGC). We analyzed the whole-genome of more than 47,000 cases and 68,000 controls and performed a one of a kind exhaustive association analysis that revealed 233 genome-wide associations (p-value<5x10-8) and another 416 associations that were statistically replicated but did not reach the genome-wide level of significance. Our findings explain up to 48% of the disease's heritability, establishing multiple sclerosis as one of the most well-characterized genetically disease. Via an ensemble of gene prioritization…

Some personal comments on “The genetic and genomic map of multiple sclerosis” that is now available in biorxiv

Few hours ago, with great pride we submitted the Genetic and Genomic Map of Multiple Sclerosis for consideration in a weekly journal. In parallel, we made the paper available in biorxiv to get our results out as soon as possible. This work is the outcome of collaboration of hundreds of scientists (International Multiple Sclerosis Genetics Consortium; IMSGC), selflessness of hundreds of thousand of individuals that donate their DNA for studies, and many agencies our the planet that funded local, national, or international efforts. Of course I am perhaps the most biased person regarding this study but it is undeniably a…
