FaceBase Study of Facial Shape in Tanzania: CIDR

Study ID Alternative Stable ID Type
phs000622 Clinical Trial

Study Description

The goals of this project are to identify loci that underlie major genetic determinants of orofacial shape, by means of a GWAS in a cohort of normal African children (from Tanzania) from whom we have collected 3D digitized facial morphometric scans, and a subsequent replication study of normal children from the same population. These studies are part of the NIDCR FaceBase initiative ( In addition to dbGaP, all study genotype and phenotype data (including primary facial scans and landmarks) will be available for data-sharing with qualified investigators via the NIDCR FaceBase Hub (, following approval by the NIDCR FaceBase Data Access Committee.
