New mathematical model explains variability in mutation rates across the human genome

Researchers developed a mathematical model to estimate the rates of mutation as a function of the nearby sequences of DNA ‘letters’ — called nucleotides. This new model not only provides clues into the process of mutation, but also helps discover possible genetic risk factors that influence complex human diseases, such as autism spectrum disorder. —> Read More
