Kari Stefansson says : “We have found a twin pair where one of the twins has mutations in all cells of his body, and they are not found in any cell in the body of the other twin.

Kari Stefansson said : "Imagine you have identical twins who are reared apart. If one of them develops autism, the classic interpretation is that it is down to environmental factors.

finanznachrichten-en Thursday, January 24, 2019 10:11:00 PM EAT

Kari Stefansson concluded : "The classic premise of evolution is that it is powered first by random genetic change. But we see here in great detail how this process is in fact systematically regulated - by the genome itself and by the fact that recombination and de novo mutation are linked. We have identified 35 sequence variants affecting recombination rate and location, and show that de novo mutations are more than fifty times more likely at recombination sites than elsewhere in the genome. Furthermore, women contribute far more to recombination and men to de novo mutation, and it is the latter that comprise a major source of rare diseases of childhood. What we see here is that the genome is an engine for generating diversity within certain bounds. This is clearly beneficial to the success of our species but at great cost to some individuals with rare diseases, which are therefore a collective responsibility we must strive to address," External link

Kari Stefansson concluded : "We know we have put our finger on something fundamental when we find a single variant that confers on carriers an average one year of extra lifespan. Our unrivalled population resources and knowledge of genetics in Iceland put us in a privileged position to systematically discover such low-frequency variants. As our model expands to different corners of the globe, we expect to accelerate our discovery and validation efforts to many populations and all continental ancestries. This is the promise of the big genetics paradigm that we pioneered and that is now delivering to the benefit of patients around the world," External link

Kari Stefansson said : “It is amazing to see how the community is coming together as one to deal with this threat. Here at deCODE people are working 24/7 to screen for and to sequence the virus. The screening tells us where the virus is and the sequencing how it differs between the places where it is and how it continues to mutate” External link

Kari Stefansson said : "Over the past twenty years we have been committed to studying and publishing on de novo mutation and recombination and their relevance to human evolution and disease. We have done this both because it is of fundamental interest to understand more about who we are as a species, and because here in Iceland we have unique resources to address these questions and their relevance to health and medicine," External link

Kari Stefansson concluded : "The classic premise of evolution is that it is powered first by random genetic change. But we see here in great detail how this process is in fact systematically regulated - by the genome itself and by the fact that recombination and de novo mutation are linked. We have identified 35 sequence variants affecting recombination rate and location, and show that de novo mutations are more than fifty times more likely at recombination sites than elsewhere in the genome. Furthermore, women contribute far more to recombination and men to de novo mutation, and it is the latter that comprise a major source of rare diseases of childhood. What we see here is that the genome is an engine for generating diversity within certain bounds. This is clearly beneficial to the success of our species but at great cost to some individuals with rare diseases, which are therefore a collective responsibility we must strive to address," External link
