The predisposition for many diseases lies in our genes – but the relevant genes or combinations that lead to diseases are usually not yet known. As part of a comprehensive international study, a Finnish research group has now succeeded in gaining new insights into the inheritance of diseases and identifying new disease genes. To do this, they combined genome and electronic health data.

For example, the researchers were able to identify new genes for early-onset cataracts, better known as cataracts, for female infertility and for hearing loss. Her research is based on genome information combined with digital health data from more than 170,000 Finns.
