Low coverage (4-6x) sequencing on samples from population cohorts (Finrisk, Health2000) will be done at Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (WTSI) using Illumina HiSeq sequencing technology. We will produce 100bp paired end reads. Variants will be called using the 1000 Genomes Project pipeline. The samples have been selected from a national representative set of approximately 30,300 samples and comprises 500 individuals of each gender in the extreme tail of high density lipoprotein (HDL) concentrations. Included individuals were between 25 and 65 years of age. Individuals with a diagnosis of diabetes or BMI>30 were excluded from the study.
