And our collaboration with the Palamara Lab at Oxford, lead by Juba Saada, studying identity-by-descent genetic relatedness in the UK Biobank is now in press at Nature Communications.

Identity-by-descent detection across 487,409 British samples reveals fine scale population structure and ultra-rare variant associations. JN Saada, G Kalantzis, D Shyr, F Cooper, M Robinson, A Gusev[+] and PF Palamara[+]. 2020
