Fat Distribution Genetics Advanced through Targeting of Waist-to-Hip Ratio Genes

10:37 EST 19 Feb 2019 | Genetic Engineering News

The identification of obesity-associated genes has been a growing area of research over the last two decades, altering our understanding of obesity. A new study broadens our understanding of genes’ role in obesity by targeting body-fat distribution. Specifically, the researchers present the first association of body-fat distribution, assessed by waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) adjusted for body mass index, with […]
