Whole genome sequence analysis of blood lipid levels in >66,000 individuals

A team of CGM investigators and colleagues led by Pradeep Natarajan uncovered new genetic mechanisms for plasma lipid alterations using whole genome sequencing. The group expanded the allelic heterogeneity of lipids across diverse populations missed by current imputation methods. This work uncovered a new rare non-coding variant model of hyperlipidemia using new methods.
