Illuminating the Interaction Between Genetics and COVID-19
Human infection is a complex interaction between the microbe, the environment, and the human host. A person’s genes can have a particularly profound effect. Marylyn Ritchie, PhD, a professor of Genetics and director of the Center for Translational Bioinformatics, and Daniel Rader, MD, chair of Genetics, in a new study, illuminate research opportunities to identify genetic factors that increase susceptibility or resistance to the complications of COVID-19, and how findings from research into the interaction between genetics and the virus can help scientists further research and clinicians improve patient care.
