First 25OH-D3 GWA online

The first genomewide association for vitamin D serum levels is already online as the Framingham people told me earlier this day, many thanks!


There are 3 important regions on the above figure figure: around rs1394615, rs1877165 and rs2160595, see also the attached excel sheet fram25ohdexam6or7agesexadj.xls.
