Protein-coding variants implicate novel genes related to lipid homeostasis contributing to body-fat distribution.
(Nature Research (part of Springer Nature), 2019-02-18)
Body-fat distribution is a risk factor for adverse cardiovascular health consequences. We analyzed the association of body-fat distribution, assessed by waist-to-hip ratio adjusted for body mass index, with 228,985 predicted ...
Multi-Ancestry Genome-Wide Association Study of Lipid Levels Incorporating Gene-Alcohol Interactions.
(Oxford University Press, 2019-01-29)
An individual's lipid profile is influenced by genetic variants and alcohol consumption, but the contribution of interactions between these exposures has not been studied. We therefore incorporated gene-alcohol interactions ...
Refining the accuracy of validated target identification through coding variant fine-mapping in type 2 diabetes
(Nature Research (part of Springer Nature), 2018-04-09)
We aggregated coding variant data for 81,412 type 2 diabetes cases and 370,832 controls of diverse ancestry, identifying 40 coding variant association signals (P < 2.2 × 10−7); of these, 16 map outside known risk-associated ...
