• Age and sex effects on DNA methylation sites linked to genes implicated in severe COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2 host cell entry 

      Bohlin, Jon; Page, Christian Magnus; Lee, Yunsung; Pettersson, John H.-O.; Jugessur, Astanand; Magnus, Per Minor; Håberg, Siri Eldevik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Male sex and advanced age are associated with severe symptoms of COVID-19. Sex and age also exhibit substantial associations with genome-wide DNA methylation (DNAm) differences in humans. Using a random sample of Illumina ...
    • Cross-fitted instrument: A blueprint for one-sample Mendelian randomization 

      Denault, William Robert Paul; Bohlin, Jon; Page, Christian Magnus; Burgess, Stephen; Jugessur, Astanand (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022-08-29)
      Bias from weak instruments may undermine the ability to estimate causal effects in instrumental variable regression (IVR). We present here a new approach to handling weak instrument bias through the application of a new ...
    • DNA methylation in newborns conceived by assisted reproductive technology 

      Håberg, Siri Eldevik; Page, Christian Magnus; Lee, Yunsung; Nustad, Haakon Egdetveit; Magnus, Maria Christine; Haftorn, Kristine Løkås; Carlsen, Ellen Øen; Denault, William Robert Paul; Bohlin, Jon; Jugessur, Astanand; Magnus, Per Minor; Gjessing, Håkon Kristian; Lyle, Robert (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Assisted reproductive technology (ART) may affect fetal development through epigenetic mechanisms as the timing of ART procedures coincides with the extensive epigenetic remodeling occurring between fertilization and embryo ...
    • An EPIC predictor of gestational age and its application to newborns conceived by assisted reproductive technologies 

      Haftorn, Kristine Løkås; Lee, Yunsung; Denault, William Robert Paul; Page, Christian Magnus; Nustad, Haakon Egdetveit; Lyle, Robert; Gjessing, Håkon Kristian; Malmberg, Anni; Magnus, Maria Christine; Næss, Øyvind; Czamara, Darina; Räikkönen, Katri; Lahti, Jari; Magnus, Per Minor; Håberg, Siri Eldevik; Jugessur, Astanand; Bohlin, Jon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background: Gestational age is a useful proxy for assessing developmental maturity, but correct estimation of gestational age is difficult using clinical measures. DNA methylation at birth has proven to be an accurate ...
    • Meta-analysis of epigenome-wide association studies in neonates reveals widespread differential DNA methylation associated with birthweight
