ENGAGE consortium Telomere Length data file

We are releasing the summary data from the 2013 ENGAGE meta-analysis of mean telomere length genome-wide association data, in order to enable other researchers to examine particular variants or loci for their evidence of association with telomere length. We include results from 2.5 million directly genotyped or imputed single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that passed the QC stage prior to the meta-analysis stage. In our own analysis we excluded variants with a small sample size (<50% of the overall sample) but present them here with an identifier as to which we did not consider.

The data contained within ENGAGE_telo_overall_finalrelease.txt are:
