Children's Hospital of Philadelphia: GWAS of Left-Sided Cardiac Defects
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
This is a family-based genome-wide association study of congenital left-sided cardiac lesions (LSLs). Cases with LSLs and their parents were recruited from the Cardiac Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia between 1997 and 2010. The discovery dataset included 405 LSL case-parent triads. DNA was extracted from blood or saliva samples from these subjects and genotyping was conducted using the Illumina Infinium II HumanHap550K array (V3). This study was conducted with approval from the Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and all research subjects provided either written informed consent or, when appropriate, assent.
