GIANT consortium data files
From Giant Consortium
GIANT consortium GWAS metadata is available here for download.
We are releasing the summary data from our 2010 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. A manuscript describing the rationale for releasing association data but not frequency data is in preparation.
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.
- The dbSNP name of the genetic marker
- The first allele, by definition the trait-increasing allele (hg18 + strand)
- The second allele (hg18 + strand)
- The allele frequency of Allele1 in the HapMap CEU population
- P value after meta-analysis using regression coefficients (beta and standard error), and after correction for inflation of test statistics using genomic control both at the individual study level and again after meta-analysis
- Number of observations
