NIDDK IBD Genetics Consortium Crohn's Disease Genome-Wide Association Study
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
This dataset contains data from a genome-wide association study performed with 968 Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) affected cases and 995 unrelated controls using the Illumina HumanHap300 Genotyping BeadChip. Cases were selected to have Crohn's disease with ileal involvement, and controls were matched to cases based on sex and year of birth. Subjects were drawn from two cohorts: (1) persons with non-Jewish, European ancestry (561 cases and 563 controls), and (2) persons with Jewish ancestry (407 cases and 432 controls). Genotyping was performed at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.
Seven-hundred fifty-four of the samples (468 cases and 286 controls) were taken from the NIDDK IBD Genetics Consortium cell line repository. These samples are identified in the IBD_Sample file. The subject IDs for these individuals may be used to request corresponding samples for follow-up research through the repository. In addition, complete phenotype data for these individuals are available, together with the Consortium's phenotyping manual ... (Show More)
