Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have robustly found a correlation between coronary artery disease (CAD) and an intergenic region at locus 9p21.3. However, the mechanistic implication of this association is unknown. Recently in Cell, Lo Sardo et al. used hiPSC genome editing to demonstrate how this locus contributes to CAD predisposition.
