EGG GWAS: Birth weight summary statistics

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Database


  1. Resource Description
    "We are releasing the summary data from our genome-wide meta-analyses of birth weight, in order to enable other researchers to examine particular variants or loci of their interest for association with this trait. The file includes P-values and direction of effect at over 2 million directly genotyped or imputed single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from the HapMap project (release 27). To minimise the possibility of identification of individuals from these summary results, we are not releasing allele frequency data from our samples. Trait values for birth weight (BW) were transformed to a Z-score and assessed for association with each SNP using linear regression of the birth weight Z-score against genotype using an additive genetic model, with sex and, where available, gestational age as covariables. Dataset Details The birth weight dataset was generated by performing a meta-analysis of up to 18 population-based European studies (total n = 26,836 individuals)."
