New technique aids search for genetic roots of disease

Some 10 million points of genetic variation are scattered across each DNA molecule, and those variations make us who we are. But some variants contribute to diseases, and distinguishing harmless from hazardous variants is a challenge. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have developed a new technique to cheaply and rapidly create myriad sets of DNA fragments that include all the possible genetic variants in a particular stretch of DNA.
