The Glaucoma Genetics Lab joined Tin Aung, CC Khor, and our colleagues around the world in conducting a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of exfoliation syndrome and glaucoma. This huge multi-center study of 13,620 patients and 109,837 control subjects identified five new genetic risk factors for exfoliation syndrome: POMP, TMEM136, AGPAT1, RBMS3, and SEMA6A.
