Caption: Obesity research. Molecular biologist (left) and geneticist using a DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) sequence system, the results of which are displayed on the screen (right). The system enables the examination of a person's genetic sequence to look for certain genes. In this case they are looking to identify which individuals carry a specific gene mutation associated with high triglyceride levels. Triglycerides are an association between glycerol and fatty acids. They are the main constituent of vegetable oil and animal fats. High levels of triglycerides are associated with obesity and can lead to other health complications, including heart disease.
