This paper 'Using Genetic Variation to Explore the Causal Effect of Maternal Pregnancy Adiposity on Future Offspring Adiposity: A Mendelian Randomisation Study' was published in January 2017 in PLOS Medicine. The paper includes some authors who are members of the DynaHEALTH consortium: Janine F. Felix and Vincent W. Jaddoe.

This study investigated whether genetically elevated body mass index (BMI) of mothers in pregnancy was causally associated with higher levels of fatness in their offspring in childhood and adolescence, over and above the association expected given genetic transmission of BMI-associated variants.
