Abstract
-Plasma lipid levels as well as coronary artery disease (CAD) have been shown to be highly heritable with estimates ranging from 40%-60%. However, top variants detected by large-scale genome-wide association studies (GWAS) explain only a fraction of the total variance in plasma lipid phenotypes and CAD.
