One SNP at a Time: Moving beyond GWAS in Psoriasis.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although genome-wide association studies have revealed important insights into the global genetic basis of psoriasis, the findings require further investigation. At present, the known genetic risk loci are largely uncharacterized in terms of the variant or gene responsible for the association, the biological pathway involved, and the main cell type driving the pathology. This review primarily focuses on current approaches toward gaining a complete understanding of how these known genetic loci contribute to an increased disease risk in psoriasis.
