This week, we highlight articles from the cutting edge of genetics research, including a a proposal for using genome editing towards eradicating malaria, a massive study uncovering over 100 genetic markers linked to schizophrenia, and a strategy for improving drug discovery by honing in on genes that, when defective, protect the individuals who carry them from diseases such as type 2 diabetes.
