NIDDK IBD Genetics Consortium Crohn's Disease Genome-Wide Association Study

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 and the forms used to collect the data. The remaining 1,209 samples were obtained from pre-existing collections ascertained through Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Johns Hopkins University, University of Chicago, University of Montreal, University of Pittsburgh, University of Toronto, and the New York Health project (controls only). For these samples, only sex, cohort (Jewish vs. non-Jewish), and age at diagnosis (cases only) are available.

Two-hundred three individuals from among the pre-existing samples did not provide consent to release their genotype data (designated as consent group 2 in the file IBD_Subject). Thus, individual genotype data are only provided for 1,760 samples. To compensate for this, we have provided summary results for each SNP. These are based on a stratified analysis testing case/control association. Fifty-one samples had a call rate less than 93% and were therefore excluded from this analysis, leaving an overall sample size of 1,963 - 51 = 1,912.

X Chromosome Heterozygosity
Nine samples have X chromosome heterozygosity that is neither consistent nor inconsistent with their phenotypic sex. One of these samples was found to have Turner Syndrome. The remaining 8 samples have heterozygosity ranging from 35-76%.
