Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Implicates Causative Osteoporosis Genes


EurekAlert! reports Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) research uncovers innovative functional genomics tools likely to aid discovery in other genetic diseases.  They have harnessed powerful data analysis tools and three-dimensional studies of genomic geography to implicate news risk genes for osteoporosis, the chronic bone weakening condition that impacts millions.  Uncovering the causative genes may later open the door to more effective treatments.
