Study Description

For the GENEVA CARDIA project, three genotype call sets were generated from a single set of array scans as a consequence of DNA sample quality problems. These call sets are designated "Birdsuite-1", "Birdsuite-2" and "Beaglecall". ("Beaglecall" used both Birdseed and BEAGLECALL calling algorithms.) An analysis-ready genotypic data set is provided in PLINK format for the "Beaglecall" set only, because it performs very well in QC analyses. Only raw CHP and ALLELE_SUMMARY files are provided for the two Birdsuite call sets because they have significant quality issues. Use of the Beaglecall set is highly recommended. Users of the other two call sets should proceed with caution. More details are given in the genotypic QC report.

The CARDIA study, sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), is a prospective, multi-center investigation of the natural history and etiology of cardiovascular disease in African-Americans and Whites 18-30 years of age at the time of initial examination. The initial examination included 5,115 participants selectively ... (Show More)
