Abstract: -The aim was to estimate the contribution of genetic factors in the skinfold (SF) patterning of children and adolescents from Mozambique. Six SF were measured, and seven phenotypes were derived: Σ6SF, ΣSF from the trunk, ΣSF from the extremities, the ΣSF trunk/extremities ratio (TER), first, second and third principal components. Heritability (h 2 ) and correlations (r) in sibships were calculated using the ASSOC and FCOR modules of the SAGE 5.3 Genetic Epidemiology software. The h 2 was high for TER (65%) and… Show more
