TitleBuilding on GWAS for NHLBI-diseases: the U.S. CHARGE consortium (CHARGE-S): CHS
AbstractGenome-wide association studies (GWAS) have successfully localized multiple loci containing common variations influencing coronary heart disease and its risk factors, but in most cases neither the gene underlying disease susceptibility nor the spectrum of candidate functional variants has been identified. Building on GWAS for NHLBI-diseases: the U.S. CHARGE consortium (the CHARGE sequencing (CHARGE-S) consortium) is a collaborative effort to leverage existing population, laboratory and computational resources to identify susceptibility genes underlying genome-wide significant and well-replicated GWAS findings for heart, lung and blood diseases and their risk factors. The U.S. CHARGE consortium consists of multiple large population-based longitudinal cohort studies, including the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study (N=15,792), the Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS) (N=5,888), and the Framingham Heart Study (FHS) (N=14,428). The study has taken... (for more see dbGaP study page.)
