Description

Hi,

We are a research group planning to carry out a GWAS project and would like to apply for the genetic data of Understanding Society cohort as our UK controls. I checked some information on the website and still have one question about the genetic data application. If we submit a application to EGA, which means we only request access to the genetic data, could we also get access to several basic phenotype variables such as age, gender, ethnicity and residential area for all individuals?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Tenghao

Dear Tenghao,

Many thanks for your enquiry. For this, you would need to apply via the METADAC for genetics data combined with survey data:

Hope this helps - but please do ask if you have further questions.

Best wishes, Victoria.
