    Default Here "based on" refers to "(a strong framework that is) based on.."?

    Context:

    The lack of objective tests for phenotyping presents enormous difficulties for genetic and other forms of investigation. While type 2 diabetes mellitus and hypertension, for example, are both highly heterogeneous disorders,the measurement of glucose tolerance or of systolic and diastolic blood pressure creates a strong framework within
    which subtyping can occur, generally based on additional objective measures.

    Hi,

    As I read it, it refers back to 'subtyping' rather than to 'strong framework'. Subtyping (whatever that is) is done according to additional objective measures (and the whole process is included/within) a strong framework.

    It's not my specialty though, and I find it somewhat messy.
