Early AMD (Winkler et al. 2020)

Early AMD - Summary Statistics

This site provides a download link for the summary statistics from our genome-wide association meta-analysis for early AMD (14,034 early AMD cases; 91,214 controls). The meta-analysis included summary statistics from 11 sources, including data from the International AMD Genomics Consortium (IAMDGC) and the UK Biobank. An EasyQC cleaning script for the individual study GWAS results can be found at www.genepi-regensburg.de/easyqc

The data is also available from the GWAS catalogue.
