New paper: left/right asymmetry genes and handedness

We report the results of our GWAS for a measure of handedness in PLoS Genetics.

Our study shows that genes already known to control the establishment of left/right body asymmetries are also implicated in handedness. These results have important implications to understand how the human brain develops and how these pathways might be relevant for neurodevelopmental disorders.
