Defining the role of common variation in the genomic and biological architecture of adult human height

  • Published 2014

Abstract

Using genome-wide data from 253,288 individuals, we identified 697 variants at genome-wide significance that together explained one-fifth of the heritability for adult height. By testing different numbers of variants in independent studies, we show that the most strongly associated ~2,000, ~3,700 and ~9,500 SNPs explained ~2 %, ~24% and ~29% of phenotypic… (More)
