STOP-related research published in Frontiers in Genetics

Professor Paolo Vineis of Imperial College London, and a researcher in the STOP project, recently co-authored* an article in Frontiers in Genetics (www.frontiersin.org | 1 April 2019 | Volume 10 | Article 325), on “The Cord Blood Insulin and Mitochondrial DNA Content Related Methylome”.

Frontiers in Genetics publishes rigorously peer-reviewed research on genes and genomes relating to all the domains of life, from humans to plants to livestock and other model organisms. The article talks about the relationship between mitochondrial DNA content and insulin levels at birth, which could predispose children to metabolic diseases later on.
