Shared genetic pathways contribute to risk of hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathies with opposite directions of effect

Nature Genetics, Published online: 25 January 2021; doi:10.1038/s41588-020-00762-2Genome-wide analyses identify multiple loci associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and left ventricular (LV) traits. Cardiomyopathies exhibit strong genetic correlations with LV traits, with opposing effects in HCM and DCM.

Common genetic variants and modifiable risk factors underpin hypertrophic cardiomyopathy susceptibility and expressivity

Nature Genetics, Published online: 25 January 2021; doi:10.1038/s41588-020-00764-0Genome-wide association analyses identify 12 susceptibility loci for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). A genetic risk score for HCM was associated with disease status in a validation study and influenced phenotypic severity in carriers of risk variants in sarcomere genes.

Mutation load at a mimicry supergene sheds new light on the evolution of inversion polymorphisms

Nature Genetics, Published online: 25 January 2021; doi:10.1038/s41588-020-00771-1Chromosomal inversions at the mimicry locus of Heliconius numata butterflies accumulate deleterious variants. This leads to selection against homozygosity, in opposition to positive selection for mimicry, resulting in intermediate allele frequency.
