Identification of low frequency variants associated with ulcerative colitis using whole-genome sequencing

Dataset ID Technology Samples
EGAD00001000409 Illumina HiSeq 2000 1992

Dataset Description

2000 ulcerative colitis cases drawn from the UKIBD Genetics Consortium cohort and whole-genome sequenced at 2X depth. A case control association study using control samples whole-genome sequenced by UK10K will be undertaken to identify common, low-frequency and rare variants associated with ulcerative colitis. Data will be combined with similar data across 3000 Crohn's disease cases from the same cohort to identify inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) loci and better understand the genetic differences and similarities of the two common forms of IBD.
