Genetic Investigation of ANthropometric Traits (GIANT) consortium Learn more >
GIANT is an international collaboration that seeks to identify genetic loci that modulate human body size and shape, including height and measures of obesity.
This dataset represents the female, European-ancestry subset of GIANT Anthropometric 2015 Waist GWAS. GWAS meta-analyses of traits related to waist and hip circumferences, which reflect body fat distribution, were conducted in up to 224,459 individuals.
