Identification of LZTFL1 as a candidate effector gene at a COVID-19 risk locus | Nature Genetics

Identification of LZTFL1 as a candidate effector gene at a COVID-19 risk locus | Nature Genetics: Genome-wide association studies identified the 3p21.31 region as conferring a twofold increased risk of respiratory failure. Here, using a combined multiomics and machine learning approach, we identify the gain-of-function risk A allele of an SNP, rs17713054G>A, as a probable causative variant.

I would love to see more research about our genetic susceptibility to Covid and its variants.  Perhaps in the future an algorithm will look at age, health, and genetics and select a specific vaccine.  Designer vaccines
