NHLBI TOPMed: HyperGEN - Genetics of Left Ventricular (LV) Hypertrophy
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The Hypertension Genetic Epidemiology Network Study (HyperGEN) - Genetics of Left Ventricular (LV) Hypertrophy is a familial study aimed to understand genetic risk factors for LV hypertrophy by conducting genetic studies of continuous traits from echocardiography exams. The originating HyperGEN study aimed to understand genetic risk factors for hypertension. Data from detailed clinical exams as well as genotyping data for linkage studies, candidate gene studies and GWAS have been collected and is shared between HyperGEN and the ancillary HyperGEN - Genetics of LV Hypertrophy study.
