Population structure from NOS genes correlates with geographical differences in coronary incidence across Europe
OBJECTIVES: The population analysis of cardiovascular risk and non-risk genetic variation can help to identify adaptive or random demographic processes that shaped coronary incidence variation across geography. MATERIAL ...
