Multiancestry genome-wide association study of 520,000 subjects identifies 32 loci associated with stroke and stroke subtypes.(Okada Group, in Nature Genetics)

The international research groups including Yukinori Okada (IFReC & Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka University) conducted a multiancestry genome-wide-association meta-analysis in 521,612 individuals (67,162 cases and 454,450 controls) and discovered 22 new stroke risk loci, bringing the total to 32.
