UK10K_OBESITY_SCOOP

The Severe Childhood Onset Obesity Project (SCOOP) is a sub-cohort of the Genetics Of Obesity Study (GOOS) cohort, established by Sadaf Farooqi and Steve O'Rahilly at the University of Cambridge. The GOOS cohort contains >4000 patients of diverse geographic origin, many of whom have monogenic and syndromic forms of obesity, and includes patients that are offspring of consanguineous union. SCOOP is a subset of >1500 UK Caucasian patients with severe, early onset obesity (all patients have a BMI Standard Deviation Score (SDS) > 3 and obesity onset before the age of 10 years), in whom known monogenic causes of obesity have been excluded.

Additional restrictions on data use:
The data can only be used to look at genetic variation associated with obesity. In accordance with ethical committee approval, the data cannot be analysed in relation to ancestry or other genetic diseases.
Data can be used as controls:
No
