    The GCAT project participates in a worldwide genomic study to identify risk factors for covid-19

    An International consortium discovers various genetic markers associated with infection by SARS-CoV-2 and the severity of covid-19. The IGTP forms part of the consortium with the GCAT'Genomes for Life Project, a population cohort of 20,000 people from across Catalonia. The GCAT has contributed the analyzed data of 5,000 participants to the study.

    Genes may determine that some people develop severe forms of COVID-19

    An international study describes that the vulnerability of certain people to the development of severe clinical forms in SARS-COV-2 virus infection may be influenced by their genetic characteristics. This collaborative work has included the participation of CIBER in its Liver and Digestive Diseases (CIBEREHD) area, as well as Respiratory Diseases (CIBERES) and the CIBER of Epidemiology and Public Health (CIBERESP).
