GIANT consortium GWAS metadata is available here for download.

We are releasing the summary data from our 2010 meta-analyses of GWA data, in order to enable other researchers to examine particular variants or loci for their evidence of association with anthropometric traits. The files include p-values and direction of effect at over 2 million directly genotyped or imputed single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). To prevent the possibility of identification of individuals from these summary results, we are not releasing allele frequency data from our samples. A manuscript describing the rationale for releasing association data but not frequency data is in preparation.

BMI (79 MB; 2,471,517 lines)

MD5 (GIANT_BMI_Speliotes2010_publicrelease_HapMapCeuFreq.txt) = 38c836542807a3830101bcf48bb34472

Speliotes, E.K., Willer, C.J., Berndt, S.I., Monda, K.L., Thorleifsson, G., Jackson, A.U., Allen, H.L., Lindgren, C.M., Luan, J., Magi, R., et al. (2010). Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index. Nat Genet 42, 937-948.

Height (82 MB; 2,469,636 lines)

MD5 (GIANT_HEIGHT_LangoAllen2010_publicrelease_HapMapCeuFreq.txt) = b51b4c4ff1f03bd33c4b2dfd6b10cb82

WHRadjBMI (75 MB; 2,483,326 lines)

MD5 (GIANT_WHRadjBMI_Heid2010_publicrelease_HapMapCeuFreq.txt) = 8f7e2ca61c33a120db9e7bfe51e3c053

If you use these waist-hip ratio adjusted for BMI data, please cite:

Heid, I.M., Jackson, A.U., Randall, J.C., Winkler, T.W., Qi, L., Steinthorsdottir, V., Thorleifsson, G., Zillikens, M.C., Speliotes, E.K., Magi, R., et al. (2010). Meta-analysis identifies 13 new loci associated with waist-hip ratio and reveals sexual dimorphism in the genetic basis of fat distribution. Nat Genet 42, 949-960.
