Atrial Fibrillation Genetics Update: Toward Clinical Implementation

Network members from Bærum Hospital and the University Medical Center Groningen, have published a contemporary review paper entitled “Atrial Fibrillation Genetics Update: Toward Clinical Implementation” in the online journal Frontiers in Cardiovascular medicine. The review was published as part of the research topic Advances in Atrial Fibrillation – Towards Personalized Medicine, and comprehensively covers the genetics of AF, from the early days to the latest advances. It highlights the development of different techniques including GWAS, Mendelian randomization and high-throughput sequencing in both family- and population based studies, and illustrates how the last few years have provided an accelerated discovery of AF-related genetic variants. Further, the review covers AF risk prediction and therapeutic development based on genetic research, aiming to provide some guidance on how our increasing knowledge of AF genetics can be implemented into clinical decision-making today.
