English Longitudinal Study of Ageing Genome-wide genotyping using the Illumina HumanOmni2.5-8
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
These data are for a Genome Wide Association Study (GWAS) in the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA, www.ifs.org.uk/elsa), building on the existing ELSA DNA Repository (EDNAR). This will establish a valuable resource for UK and international scientists, giving them access to GWAS genotyping data. Phenotype data, available on request, includes measures of personality, attitudes, behaviours as well as detailed social and economic outcomes; high quality biomarkers and other intermediate phenotypes; a range of more distal phenotypes, such as direct assessments of health (for example, hypertension, diabetes, muscle strength and cognitive function), and the opportunity to analyse existing biological samples for additional biomarkers, including metabolomic studies. Importantly, this resource would be matched with a near identical resource established in the United States for the Health and Retirement Study (HRS), giving the potential for high quality replication studies and comparative analyses.
