A Novel Susceptibility Locus for Type 1 Diabetes on Chr12q13 Identified by a Genome-Wide Association Study
(American Diabetes Association, 2008-04)
OBJECTIVE—In stage 1 of our genome-wide association (GWA) study for type 1 diabetes, one locus at 16p13 was detected (P = 1.03 × 10−10) and confirmed in two additional cohorts. Here we describe the results of testing, in ...
High-resolution mapping and analysis of copy number variations in the human genome: a data resource for clinical and research applications
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2009-09-19)
We present a database of copy number variations (CNVs) detected in 2026 disease-free individuals, using high-density, SNP-based oligonucleotide microarrays. This large cohort, comprised mainly of Caucasians (65.2%) and ...
Association analysis of the FTO gene with obesity in children of Caucasian and African ancestry reveals a common tagging SNP
(Public Library of Science, 2008-03)
Recently an association was demonstrated between the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rs9939609, within the FTO locus and obesity as a consequence of a genome wide association (GWA) study of type 2 diabetes in adults. ...
