Abstract: The genomic revolution has transformed the type 2 diabetes genetic landscape, with many loci reported to have association with disease risk. Such loci exert a weak to modest efect size and are as yet of limited use in risk prediction studies. They also fail to account for robust genotype-phenotype associations. This study aims to address these issues by looking at the quantitative summation of risk alleles and the use of special populations to better define risk and phenotypic associations
