Eric S.

This year, seven of the hottest researchers published papers in the genetics field.  Three researchers from deCODE genetics in Iceland made the list: Augustine Kong, Kári Stefánsson and Unnur Thorsteinsdottir. Their studies focus on genome-wide analyses of schizophrenia, obesity, diabetes, and other disorders.
