body fat distribution Gene Set

Dataset GAD Gene-Disease Associations
Category disease or phenotype associations
Type disease
Description Deposits of ADIPOSE TISSUE throughout the body. The pattern of fat deposits in the body regions is an indicator of health status. Excess ABDOMINAL FAT increases health risks more than excess fat around the hips or thighs, therefore, WAIST-HIP RATIO is often used to determine health risks.
