Mutation of one gene is all it takes to get cystic fibrosis (CF), but disease severity depends on many other genes and proteins. For the first time, researchers at the UNC School of Medicine have identified genetic pathways,  or clusters of genes, that play major roles in why one person with CF might never experience the worse kinds of symptoms
