The Decode researchers looked for human knockouts in Iceland — and found a lot of them. Nearly 8 percent of Icelanders lack a working version of a gene. All told, the Decode team identified 1,171 genes shut down in Icelandic knockouts.
In a 2012 study, Dr. MacArthur and his colleagues were able to identify just 253 genes knocked out in humans.
