Next Generation Mendelian Genetics: Familial Combined Hyperlipidemia
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The NHGRI Next Generation Mendelian Genetics project uses exome resequencing to identify variants in unsolved Mendelian diseases.
The research study procedures included the collection of a fasting blood sample, 2 medical history/life style questionnaires and a measurement of subjects' waist circumference that were completed many years ago. Blood samples were analyzed for metabolic markers including cholesterol, HDL, triglycerides and APOE. Genetic tests targeted known and novel genes and polymorphisms associated with carotid artery disease.
