Synopsis:
Summarizing the latest advances in the fight against the obesity epidemic, his publication pulls together work from more than a dozen leading obesity, energetics, and nutrition researchers working on genetic and genomic aspects of obesity. Their contributions present the latest findings from randomized controlled trials and other ongoing investigations, and direct our focus toward future genetics and epigenetic targets in our struggle with the obesity epidemic in the USA and across the globe. The topics considered range from ancestral admixture to assortative mating, from functional analysis to genome-wide association studies, and from satiety to brain anatomy. This compilation of reviews and methodological developments will help the reader to achieve a broader appreciation of the complexities of this field as well as a deeper understanding of its latest advances and important next steps.
