It is well established that pulmonary function is in part genetically determined. These authors report a meta-analysis of genome-wide association study (GWAS) results from 20 288 participants and follow-up analyses in 54 276 participants, identifying five novel genome-wide significant loci for pulmonary function. A companion manuscript from the CHARGE Consortium, which reports a GWAS of lung function in 20 890 participants, also identifies significant associations at three of …
