Scientists find treasure trove of 110 genes linked to breast cancer

Scientists have linked 110 genes to an increased risk of breast cancer in the most comprehensive study ever to unpick the genetics of the disease. Their study used a pioneering genetic technique to analyse maps of DNA regions linked to an inherited risk of breast cancer and identify the actual genes involved in raising a woman’s risk. Researchers also linked 32 of the new genes to the length of time women survived breast cancer. (Mehr in: Cancer News — ScienceDaily)
