GSCAN GWAS Meta-analysis of Tobacco and Alcohol use (GSCAN-GWAS)
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
This study was a meta-analysis of genome-wide association study (GWAS) of substance use across 1.2 million total participants with European ancestry (some phenotypes are based on fewer participants). The phenotypes were chosen to represent different stages and kinds of substance use from initiation (age of smoking initiation) to regular use (cigarettes per day and drinks per week) to cessation (smoking cessation). For each of those phenotypes, collaborators shared their GWAS summary statistics, which were then meta-analyzed using a method that incorporates into the meta-analytic weighting the sample size, allele frequency and imputation quality score.
