CNV-association meta-analysis in 191,161 European adults reveals new loci associated with anthropometric traits.
There are few examples of robust associations between rare copy number variants (CNVs) and complex continuous human traits. Here we present a large-scale CNV association meta-analysis on anthropometric traits in up to ...
Protein-altering variants associated with body mass index implicate pathways that control energy intake and expenditure in obesity
(Nature Research (part of Springer Nature), 2017-12-22)
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified >250 loci for body mass index (BMI), implicating pathways related to neuronal biology. Most GWAS loci represent clusters of common, noncoding variants from which ...
