Genome-wide association study identifies three new melanoma susceptibility loci

Barrett, J.H. et al. Nat. Genet. doi:10.1038/ng.959 (9 October).

Two genome-wide association studies confirm genetic variants previously associated with melanoma and identify four new melanoma susceptibility loci. The new variants are not associated with pigmentation or nevus density phenotypes, suggesting that they may contribute to melanoma risk through different mechanisms.
