Release Notes

Meta-analysis was done with fixed effects inverse variance weighting. Results are available in genome builds 38 and 37. An AF filter of 0.001 and an INFO filter of 0.6 was applied to each study before meta. 1000G EUR phase 3 samples were used as a panel for pruning. Nine genome-wide significant SNPs from C2 and B2 analyses AND SNPs +/-100kb with P<0.01 around these top SNPs selected (no r2 threshold) coming to total 461 SNPs (MAF max 0.1%). Excluding the regions above, the top 9539 SNPs from clumps using MAF 1% variants, r2=0.1, kb=250.
