AKC seminar: From genetic variations to insights in the biology of obesity
August Krogh Seminar
Professor Ruth Loos
University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
Genome-wide associations have identified more than 1,000 genetic loci associated with obesity-related traits.
This talk will review how these GWAS-identified loci are translated into new biology and what the remaining challenges are.
In addition, I will discuss how these genetic loci may be used to better characterize the causes of weight gain in individuals with obesity, and as such have the potential for tailored prevention and treatment strategies.
