A genome‐wide association and replication study of blood pressure in Ugandan early adolescents
Background Genetic association studies of blood pressure (BP) have mostly been conducted in non‐African populations. Using the Entebbe Mother and Baby Study (EMaBS), we aimed to identify genetic variants associated with BP among Ugandan adolescents.
Methods Systolic and diastolic BP were measured among 10‐ and 11‐year olds. Whole‐genome genotype data were generated using Illumina omni 2.5M arrays and untyped variants were imputed. Genome‐wide assoc...Expand abstract
