Type 1 Diabetes Genetics Consortium (T1DGC): Genome-Wide Association Study in Type 1 Diabetes, 2008
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Cases with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) in the UK, were part of the Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium (WTCCC) - http://www.wtccc.org.uk - that first reported in 2007:
Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium (2007) Genome-wide association study of 14,000 cases of seven common diseases and 3,000 shared controls. Nature, 447, 661-678. [PubMed: 17554300]
In this genome-wide association study (GWAS), funded by the NIH and JDRF, and sponsored by the Type 1 Diabetes Genetics Consortium (T1DGC), we were able to extend the case and control groups used in the WTCCC, with the intention of performing a well-powered meta-analysis.
