The Finland-United States Investigation of NIDDM Genetics (FUSION) Study
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The Finland-United States Investigation of NIDDM Genetics (FUSION) study is a long-term effort to identify genetic variants that predispose to type 2 diabetes (T2D) or that impact the variability of T2D-related quantitative traits. The initial effort involved linkage analysis of affected-sibling-pair (ASP) families based on over 5,000 individuals living in Finland, and association fine mapping based on these family members and additional T2D cases and controls. We completed a genome-wide association scan on 1161 T2D cases and 1174 normal glucose tolerant (NGT) controls. Individual-level data is available for the 919 T2D cases and 787 NGT controls who reconsented to the use of their data or are deceased (phs000100). In addition, we selected these 919 T2D cases and a matched set of 919 NGT controls (774 overlapping with GWAS) for targeted sequencing of 78 genes associated with glucose, insulin, and/or lipids. 400 of these T2D cases were also chosen for whole-exome sequencing (phs000702).
