Identification of independent association signals and putative functional variants for breast cancer risk through fine-scale mapping of the 12p11 locus
Chromosomes, Human, Pair 12
Genetic Predisposition to Disease
Genome-Wide Association Study
This study identified four independent association signals at 12p11 and revealed potentially functional variants, providing additional insights into the underlying biological mechanism(s) for the association observed between variants at 12p11 and breast cancer risk.
