    Black AsthmaGeneticists in the U.S. have identified a set of “trans-ethnic” genes uniquely linked to Asthma in African-Americans. The findings, which are featured in the latest issue of Nature Genetics, are said to be a significant advance in the efforts to determine the roots of Asthma.

    “These results suggest that some asthma susceptibility loci are robust to differences in ancestry when sufficiently large samples sizes are investigated, and that ancestry-specific associations also contribute to the complex genetic architecture of asthma.”
