Myocardial Infarction Genetics Exome Sequencing Consortium: Malmo Diet and Cancer Study
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The Malmo Diet and Cancer Study (MDCS) is a community-based prospective epidemiologic cohort of 28,449 subjects who were recruited for baseline examination between 1991 and 1996. From this cohort, 6103 subjects were randomly selected to participate in a cardiovascular cohort (MDCSCC), which seeks to investigate risk factors for cardiovascular disease. This study is a subset of those samples.
All exome sequencing was performed at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT; samples sequence capture was performed using Illumina's ICE Capture reagent and sequencing was performed on an Illumina HiSeq 2000 or 2500.
