Study Description

The GoDARTS T2D-GENES Exome sequencing study is a subset of a larger Type 2 Diabetes Exome Sequencing project. This effort is a collaboration of six consortia with various funding mechanisms that have joined together to investigate genetic variants for type 2 diabetes (T2D) using the largest T2D case/control sample set compiled to date and includes samples from: T2D-GENES, GoT2D, ESP, SIGMA T2D, LuCAMP, and ProDIGY. This data generated from the Genetics of Diabetes and Audit Research Tayside Study (GoDARTS) cohort was part of the T2D-GENES (Type 2 Diabetes Genetic Exploration by Next-generation sequencing in multi-Ethnic Samples) consortium, which is a NIDDK-funded international research consortium that seeks to identify genetic variants for T2D through multiethnic sequencing studies. Sequencing for the GoDARTS study was performed at the Broad Institute using Illumina Rapid Capture on Illumina HiSeq machines.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
The GoDARTS T2D-GENES exome sequencing study includes 1924 samples, 965 T2D cases and 959 T2D controls, from European ancestry. This cohort is part of a larger exome sequencing effort from the T2D-GENES project and contains the exome sequencing vcf from the GoDARTS samples. The other data generated from the T2D-GENES project can be found in dbGAP. Samples underwent deep exome sequencing, with SNVs and INDEls called according to GATK best practices.
