Obesity is a multifactorial disorder influenced by both genetics and the environment, and its incidence is increasing rapidly worldwide. The analysis of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) across the human genome, and their relation to obesity and associated traits is helping to determine some of the underlying genetic mechanisms controlling the onset and progression of the disorder. This review discusses how SNPs can be used to identify genes and/or variants associated with obesity.
