Study Description

The Type 2 Diabetes Genetic Exploration by Next-generation sequencing in multi-Ethnic Samples (T2D-GENES) is a large collaboration effort between the University of Michigan, Broad Institute, the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, University of Chicago, NIDDK, Texas Biomedical Research Institute, University of Texas Health Science Center, University of North Carolina, Blood Systems Research Institute, and University of Mississippi Medical Center. The goal of this study is to identify genetic variants for type 2 diabetes through multiethnic sequencing studies. In this study, we use next generation sequencing to assess the role of common, low frequency, and rare variants on type 2 diabetes risk. We preformed exome sequencing in 6,546 T2D cases and 6,457 control individuals of multiethnic origin, including individuals of African American, East Asian, South Asian, Hispanic, and European descent.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
The T2D-GENES/GoT2D 13K exome sequencing study includes ~13,000 samples, half T2D cases and half T2D controls, from five ancestries (~5K Europeans, ~2K each of African-American, East-Asian, South-Asian, and Hispanic). Samples underwent deep exome sequencing, with SNVs and INDEls called according to GATK best practices; variant sites were then filtered according to the GATK best practices, and then samples and variants underwent further filtering based on aggregate genotype quality as described ...
