Summary Statistics - Phytosterols


We are releasing the summary data from our GWAMA of phytosterol traits, pending on acceptance of our publication, to empower other researchers to examine variants or loci in which they are interested for associations. These data are intended for research purposes only.

For each of the four analyzed phytosterols, we make two data sets available:

  1. Containing statistics regarding the analyses of free, esterified, free to esterified ratio, and total phytosterol level.
  2. Containing statistics regarding the analyses of the phytosterol to cholesterol and phytosterol to lanosterol ratios.

Files are in text delimited format and include:

  • markername
  • chr
  • bp (base position according to hg19)
  • ea (effect allele)
