  • The sequencing of 400 exomes has already been completed in order to identify genetic variants which could be involved in the development of type-II diabetes. This work will allow new mutations and genes involved in diabetes to be identified over the course of the coming year.
  • Techniques for analyzing mRNA levels in pancreatic tumors for use as prognostic markers have also been developed.
  • Additionally, research into fat overload and its effects on mRNA levels has already begun.
  • Identification of several polymorphisms involved in the development of obesity, diabetes, and hypertension is underway.
  • Similarly, different methods for studying the clinical importance genetic markers is also being developed.
