Regional association plots of newly discovered loci for FPG (a) and HDLC (b) in females. The SNP positions are shown at the top. The trend test -log10P values are shown for SNPs distributed in a 0.8-Mb genomic region centered on the most strongly associated signal, which is depicted as a purple diamond for the combined results from discovery and replication stages. The locations of known genes in the region are shown at the bottom. The genetic information was obtained from the Human Genome build hg 19; the LD structure was based on the 1000 Genomes ASN data
