The number of GWAS that are published every year has been growing.

 

Hey Explorer, 

Every week we provide our users with new reports based on the latest discoveries in human genetics. These reports are based on so-called genome-wide association studies (GWAS).

The idea behind GWAS is simple. First, researchers select a trait that they want to study. This trait can be a disease, a physical trait like height, or even socioeconomic traits like personal income. The researchers then examine DNA data of a large group of individuals and try to find associations between the trait and genetic markers across the genome. The goal is to discover genetic markers that increase (or decrease) the likelihood of a trait (e.g. risk of a disease).

First GWAS were conducted about 15 years ago. Since then, the number of GWAS that are published every year has been growing steadily (see chart above). Today, new GWAS are published every day which enables us to provide you with regular updates!
