Fine-mapping of lipid regions in global populations discovers ethnic-specific signals and refines previously identified lipid loci.

Abstract

Genome-wide association studies have identified over 150 loci associated with lipid traits, however, no large-scale studies exist for Hispanics and other minority populations. Additionally, the genetic architecture of lipid-influencing loci remains largely unknown. We performed one of the most racially/ethnically diverse fine-mapping genetic studies of HDL… (More)
