The genetics of obesity-related traits and lipoproteins in Filipino women

The underlying genetic component of risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) is not well understood. Recently, advances in high-throughput genotyping, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) discovery, and the development of databases such as the International Haplotype Map (HapMap) have provided scientists with tools to complete a genetic analysis of complex diseases such as CVD. Research presented in this dissertation aims to further understand the genetics of obesity-related traits and lipoprotein levels and identify variants that are...
