As part of the Genetic Consortium for Anorexia Nervosa (GCAN) and Wellcome Trust CaseControl Consortium 3 (WTCCC3), we have amassed the largest anorexia nervosa (AN)sample in the world (~4,000). Following the WTCCC3 GWAS, we secured funding from theKlarman Family Foundation to extend the genetic analyses to variants on the exome chip(CoreExome array). This pre-lim relates to carrying out genotyping on the CoreExome arrayon up to a maximum of 580 new samples.
