The second call had more than 400 participants!
Given the positive response during the call and multiple groups sharing early GWAS analyses on Slack, we aim to launch a first meta-analysis later this week. The broader analysis plan being developed is available here and we would expect to make available the first meta-analysis summary statistics immediately.
We discuss two approaches in regards to the analytical activities.
Data sharing. We had presentations from EGA(for non-US data submission) and NHGRI AnVIL(for US-based data submission). We invite studies to deposit individual-level data in these established restricted access repositories for the entire community to make use of. For more information on how that can be done and who will have access to the data, please check the new section on the website here.
Contact button. Check the new partners page, now you can directly contact other researchers. This should facilitate researchers finding substudies that have been launched or other groups with similar interests
