Genome Wide Association Study by Fogh et al.

A genome-wide association meta-analysis identifies a novel locus at 17q11.2 associated with sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Fogh I, et al. Hum Mol Genet. 2013 Nov 20.

Summary SNPs statistic table from logistic regression analyses combined in the GWAS meta-analytical study using the software METAL www.sph.umich.edu/csg/abecasis. The meta-analysis includes eight independent studies shown in the table below with 13,225 individuals analyzed for 7,389,816 overlapping markers. The displayed genotype data have been re-imputed according to Reference panel Build_37/h19 (1000 Genome Project, March 2012).
