GWAS Central has released additional studies that have been submitted directly by researchers. These studies are described in recently published or “in press” papers.
GWAS Central has released over 200 additional GWAS.
GWAS Central Study database release 11 is released 5th September 2013
Version 11 of the study database includes significant new content increasing the number of GWAS from 1008 (34,131,526 p-values) to 1,605 studies (67,723,637 p-values, 2,935163 unique dbSNP markers). All phenotypes included in the studies have been annotated to MeSH controlled vocabulary with direct mappings to Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) where available.
Version 11 includes data from:
NHGRI GWAS Catalog
Open Access Database of Genome-wide Association Results,
1958 British Birth Cohort
Studies from publication supplementary data
Direct Submissions to GWAS Central including submissions from contacting study owners
Semantic Web and Linked Data support added:
- Individual markers, phenotypes and results now output RDF and Turtle formats.
- Nanopublications: S/W resource using named graphs, and contain key results for each dataset outputs N-Quads format. Follows the nanopublication proposals suggested here.
- Construction of a TripleStore with a SPARQL server at http://fuseki.gwascentral.org
300 Studies (HGVST708-HGVST1012) from NHGRI Catalog and other sources.
Now contains study data from 1,008 studies (34,131,526 p-values).
Complete site revamp including more intuitive search and Browser functions.
GWAS Mart data mining tool integrated into site through canned queries and GWAS Mart section.
Updated MeSH and HPO terms to most recent.
Human genome build 37 support through new versions of HGMD data, UCSC chromosome information and genes (hg19), lifting over HapMap data and updating the GWAS Central marker catalogue and association database.
62.3 million total marker records (update to dbSNP b135)
141 studies (HGVST569-HGVST709) from NHGRI GWAS Catalog and other sources.
Improved news articles, extended online help and additional information related to more technical aspects of the system such as our web-services.
Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) based phenotype searches.
