Study Description

The Central Asian Kyrgyz highland population provides a unique opportunity to address genetic diversity and understand the genetic mechanisms underlying hypoxia-induced high altitude pulmonary hypertension (HAPH). While a significant fraction of the population is unaffected, there are susceptible individuals who display HAPH in the absence of any lung, cardiac or hematologic disease. We report herein the analysis of the whole genome sequencing of healthy individuals compared with HAPH patients and other controls.
