(2021). Impact of BMI and waist circumference on epigenome-wide DNA methylation and identification of epigenetic biomarkers in blood : an EWAS in multi-ethnic Asian individuals. Clinical Epigenetics, 13(1), 195-.
dc.description.abstractThe prevalence of obesity and its related chronic diseases have been increasing especially in Asian countries. Obesity-related genetic variants have been identified, but these explain little of the variation in BMI. Recent studies reported associations between DNA methylation and obesity, mostly in non-Asian populations.en_US
