Genome-wide association study identifies a new melanoma susceptibility locus at 1q21.3


We performed a genome-wide association study of melanoma in a discovery cohort of 2,168 Australian individuals with melanoma and 4,387 control individuals. In this discovery phase, we confirm several previously characterized melanoma-associated loci at MC1R, ASIP and MTAP–CDKN2A. We selected variants at nine loci for replication in three independent case… (More)
