New York: Finding it hard to sleep at night? If so, blame your genes, say researchers, who identified 57 genes associated with symptoms of insomnia, affecting 10 to 20 per cent people worldwide. “Our findings confirm a role for genetics in insomnia symptoms and expand upon the four previously found gene loci for this condition,” said lead author Jacqueline M. Lane from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). “All of these identified regions help us understand why some people get insomnia, which pathways and systems are affected, and point to possible new therapeutic targets.” (IANS)
