UKBB FALLS GWAS Data Release 2020

The GEnetic Factors for OSteoporosis (GEFOS) Consortium is a large international collaboration comprising numerous research groups. Osteoporosis is a common age-related complex disease with a strong genetic component. The UK Biobank is a health resource from the United Kingdom that has genetic data and phenotype measurements in 500,000 individuals, representative of the general population. We analyzed the full batch of genetic data, including genotyping and imputed data in up to 451,179 participants. We performed genome-wide association studies fall history.


This release comprises the summary data from our 2020 GWAS on falls in the full batch of genetic data from the UK Biobank. Analyses were performed based on the HRC imputation panel (hg19) including ~7,500,000 SNPs with MAF ≥ 1% and acceptable imputation quality (info score > 0.3).
