News Releases & Research Results
The results of study conducted by Kenichi Yamamoto (Ph.D. student) and Professor Yukinori Okada (genetic statistics) of the Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine.
The key results of research are as follows:
- The results of study conducted by Kenichi Yamamoto (Ph.D. student) and Professor Yukinori Okada (genetic statistics) of the Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine.
- Furthermore, individual differences in mitochondrial genome sequences were demonstrated to be associated with muscle deviation enzymes, kidney functions, liver deviation enzymes, and the pathology of Graves' disease using the mitochondrial genome information collected from 150,000 Japanese by the "Biobank Japan."
This study was conducted with the support of Platform Program for Promotion of Genome Medicine by AMED.
The results of study were published online in the British journal, Communications Biology, on March 6.
