Title: Genomic And Metabolomic Profiling Of Finnish Familial Dyslipidemia Families      
ID:
PRJNA324461
description:
This proposal is to re-investigate, using metabolomic profiling and advanced genomics technologies, 92 Finnish pedigrees that were ascertained for two forms of complex heritable dyslipidemia: familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCHL) and low serum levels of high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). These families were extensively phenotyped for metabolic measures and while linkage analyses yielded strong findings for FCHL and HDL-C in several chromosomal locations, identification of causal variants had been limited by the lack of sufficiently powerful technologies for both phenotypic and genotypic characterization. We now propose to re-analyze these families by obtaining new phenotypes hypothesized to more accurately reflect the biological underpinnings of dyslipidemias than the previously used composite lipid measures. The unique population structure of Finland provides special advantages for discovery of low frequency and rare disease-related variants... (for more see dbGaP study page.)
