M.; Whittaker, John; Pouta, Anneli; Hartikaninen, Anna-Liisa; Freimer, Nelson B. (Public Library of Science, 2009-03)
    Recent genome-wide association (GWA) studies have identified dozens of common variants associated with adult height. However, it is unknown how these variants influence height growth during childhood. We derived peak height ...
