Global Biobank Engine

UK Biobank array - Meta-analysis (White British, European, African, South Asian, East Asian, Admixed, Related)

Genetic Association Results

Note: We have aggregated summary statistics from over 750,000 individuals across three population cohorts: UK Biobank, Million Veterans Program and Biobank Japan. We are continuously adding data from other population cohorts in Global Biobank Engine. Please contact us if you want it to be featured.

For UK Biobank we present summary statistic results from the UK Biobank hospital in-patient health-related outcomes summary information data (Data-Field 41202); computational grouping of phenotypes with cancer (Category 100092) registry, death registry data (Category 100093), algorithmically-defined outcomes (Category 42), and verbal questionnaire data (Category 100071); and manually curated grouping of phenotypes.
