  • A key question, now, is whether these sorts of tests - that check our genetic sequences for disease-associated variants - must be run through a doctor or other health care provider's offices.

  • By mutating a gene to destroy its function (knock-out) or switching it to a disease-associated allele (knock-in), disease is induced if the hypothesis is correct.

  • A key finding, the authors said, was that there appeared to be negligible difference between the subjects and the control group in disease-associated variants, suggesting that the presence of the genetic variants linked with longevity was of greater importance than absence of disease-associated traits.
