A Genome Wide Association Study Identifies Common Variants Associated with Lipid Levels in the Chinese Population

Abstract

Plasma lipid levels are important risk factors for cardiovascular disease and are influenced by genetic and environmental factors. Recent genome wide association studies (GWAS) have identified several lipid-associated loci, but these loci have been identified primarily in European populations. In order to identify genetic markers for lipid levels in a… (More)
