Brief description Our highly successful genome-wide studies of bone mineral density (a risk factor for osteoporosis) have highlighted 60 loci relevant to the disease. However, a substantial amount of genetic variance remains unexplained. This project will focus on less common variants that have larger effect sizes and are relevant to osteoporosis, but are not well studied by approaches such as high-density SNP arrays and genome-wide association studies.
