    GAW 8 : genetic analysis workshop. Watsonville CA (USA), 1992/11/08.

    Previous family and twin studies indicate that genetic variation makes an important contribution to individual variation in high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) levels, even after adjusment for covariates (such as obesity and alcohol consumption) that also cluster in families.

    However, most studies assume that genetic mechanisms affecting variation in HDL level are the same in all subgroups of the population (e.g., men versus women, by age).

    Using data from the Kaiser-Permanente Women Twins Study, we found different patterns of clustering for monozygotic (MZ) and dizygotic (DZ) twins depending on menopausal status.
