We are releasing the summary data from our 2010-2013 meta-analyses of Genome-wide Association (GWA) data, in order to enable other researchers to examine particular variants or loci for their evidence of association with anthropometric traits. The files include p-values and direction of effect at over 2 million directly genotyped or imputed single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). To prevent the possibility of identification of individuals from these summary results, we are not releasing allele frequency data from our samples.

2010 Data File Description:

Each file consists of the following information for each SNP and its association to the specified trait based on meta-analysis in the respective publication. SNPs where N < 50% of the maximum have been excluded.

GIANT consortium 2012-2015 GWAS Metadata is Available Here for Download

2012-2015 Data File Description:

Each file consists of the following information for each SNP and its association to the specified trait based on meta-analysis in the respective publication. Significant digits for the p values, betas and standard errors are limited to two digits to further limit the possibility of identifiability.
