Disease susceptibility could be predicted more faithfully based on an enhanced knowledge of the human microbiome and human genome.
These rice genes were isolated from both infected and uninfected rice plants and are associated with either rice blast disease susceptibility or plant response to the disease.
Because the lifestyle and environmental contributions to lung cancer are already well documented, this disease provides an excellent model for identifying the genes involved and for investigating gene-environment interactions for both disease susceptibility and resistance (Bennett, 2002).
Relying primarily on the records of government agents, missionary schoolteachers, and medical personnel appointed to serve reserve populations, Lux shows how negligence and racism informed government policies towards Canada's aboriginal peoples and led to malnutrition, heightened disease susceptibility, and extraordinarily high death rates relative to other Canadians.

Positron emission tomography with (18) fluorodeoxyglucose scans were performed in 12 young adults aged 20-39 (mean age 31) who carried one [member of]4 allele, and in 15 age-matched subjects who did not carry the Alzheimer's disease susceptibility gene.
With 100,000 SNPs linked to disease susceptibility and drug response, pharmaceutical companies might perform comparative population genetics studies.
As we perform studies to examine the effect of genetic variation on medically important traits such as drug response and disease susceptibility, we believe we will benefit from the increased statistical power afforded by experimentally determined haplotypes.
But recent research puts the number of SNPs necessary to determine disease susceptibility at 500,000 or more.
Growing roses in shady situations increases disease susceptibility.
The report notes that biomarkers therefore hold the potential to predict disease susceptibility, can detect and monitor disease progression for CNS, CVS, cancer, autoimmune, metabolic and infectious diseases, and can also act as a guiding force in drug development and evaluation.
