CLEMSON, South Carolina — Scientists believe about 25 percent of the differences in human life span is determined by genetics — with the rest determined by environmental and lifestyle factors. But they don’t yet know all the genes that contribute to a long life. A study published March 5, 2020, in PLoS Biology quantified variation […]
To the Clemson Community: These are challenging times unlike anything I have seen in more than 30 years of working in higher education. I know many of you are concerned about your health, and the health of your loved ones – we are, too. In fact, every decision we have made over the past few […]
A critical question in medicine asks how individual variation in DNA can predict variation in health and disease. New research from the Clemson Center for Human Genetics identified hundreds of metabolites that might serve as intermediates to translate variation in the genome to variation in complex traits. Published recently in Genome Research, the findings could one day help doctors better monitor metabolite variation as an indicator for disease.
