The summary-level GWAS data for 23 phenotypes were from GERA and UK Biobank. Each data set has been made available as a whitespace-separate table in GCTA-COJO format. Columns are SNP, the effect allele, the other allele, frequency of the effect allele, effect size, standard error, p-value and sample size.
1. GERA data: Details of quality controls of the genotyped and imputed data can be found in Zhu et al. (2018 Nat. Commun.). The individual-level ICD-9 codes were classified into 22 common diseases. We added an additional trait ‘Disease Count’ (a count of the number of diseases affecting each individual) as a crude measure of general health status of each individual.
2. UK Biobank data: Details of quality controls of the genotyped and imputed data can be found in Zhu et al. (2018 Nat. Commun.). Individual-level ICD-10 codes were available in the UKB data. To match the diseases in GERA, we classified the phenotypes into 22 common diseases by projecting the ICD-10 codes to the classifications of ICD-9 codes in GERA taking into account the self-reported disease status. Note that we did not perform the association analysis for dermatophytosis because the number of cases was too small. We only performed the association analyses on a subset of SNPs (in common with the top associated SNPs for the risk factors) for insomnia, iron deficiency anemias, macular degeneration, peripheral vascular disease and acute reaction to stress.
1. LDSCORE_release_July2015.tar.gz: per-SNP and per-segment LD scores calculated from 44,126 unrelated indivduals and ~17M imputed variants. Columns are SNP, per-SNP LD score, and per-segment LD score.
2. GWAS_summary_release_July2015.tar.gz, GWAS summary data. Columns are SNP, the coded allele, effect size, and standard error.
