Lothian Birth Cohort 1936 whole genome sequencing study

1075 members of the Lothian Birth Cohort 1936 (LBC1936) were sequenced using the Illumina HiSeq X platform. The LBC1936 are a relatively healthy cohort of 1091 individuals who underwent cognitive and medical testing at a mean age of 69.5 (SD=0.8) years. They have since undergone four further waves of testing, approximately three years apart.
