This paper 'Associations of genetic risk scores based on adult adiposity pathways with childhood growth and adiposity measures' was published in August 2016 in BMC Genetics, Volume 17, p120. The paper was published for the Generation R Study Group and includes some authors who are members of the DynaHEALTH consortium: Janine F. Felix and Vincent W. Jaddoe.

Results from genome-wise association studies (GWAS) identified many loci and biological pathways that influence adult body mass index (BMI). The research aimed to identify if biological pathways related to adult BMI also affect infant growth and childhood adiposity measures.
