Andrew D. Johnson and Christopher J. O’Donnell, An Open Access Database of Genome-wide Association Results, BMC Medical Genetics, January 22, 2009. Abstract:
Background: The number of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) is growing rapidly leading to the discovery and replication of many new disease loci. Combining results from multiple GWAS datasets may potentially strengthen previous conclusions and suggest new disease loci, pathways or pleiotropic genes. However, no database or centralized resource currently exists that contains anywhere near the full scope of GWAS results.
