Obesity has become an epidemic in many countries and is one of the major risk conditions for disease including type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. Recent genome-wide association studies have identified two genes (FTO and near MC4R) that were unequivocally associated with body mass index (BMI) and obesity. For the Genetic Analysis Workshop 16, data from the Framingham Heart Study were made available, including longitudinal anthropometric and metabolic traits for 7130 Caucasian individuals over three generations, each with follow-up data at up to four time points. We explored the associations between four single-nucleot...
