Mutations in the DJ-1 Gene Associated with Autosomal Recessive Early-Onset Parkinsonism
The DJ-1 gene encodes a ubiquitous, highly conserved protein. Here, we show that DJ-1 mutations are associated with PARK7, a monogenic form of human parkinsonism. The function of the DJ-1 proteinExpand

Six new loci associated with body mass index highlight a neuronal influence on body weight regulation
Common variants at only two loci, FTO and MC4R, have been reproducibly associated with body mass index (BMI) in humans. To identify additional loci, we conducted meta-analysis of 15 genome-wideExpand

New genetic loci implicated in fasting glucose homeostasis and their impact on type 2 diabetes risk
Levels of circulating glucose are tightly regulated. To identify new loci influencing glycemic traits, we performed meta-analyses of 21 genome-wide association studies informative for fastingExpand

Common variants in ABCA7, MS4A6A/MS4A4E, EPHA1, CD33 and CD2AP are associated with Alzheimer’s disease
We sought to identify new susceptibility loci for Alzheimer's disease through a staged association study (GERAD+) and by testing suggestive loci reported by the Alzheimer's Disease Genetic ConsortiumExpand

Large-scale association analysis provides insights into the genetic architecture and pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes
To extend understanding of the genetic architecture and molecular basis of type 2 diabetes (T2D), we conducted a meta-analysis of genetic variants on the Metabochip, including 34,840 cases andExpand

Defining the role of common variation in the genomic and biological architecture of adult human height
Using genome-wide data from 253,288 individuals, we identified 697 variants at genome-wide significance that together explained one-fifth of the heritability for adult height. By testing differentExpand

A reference panel of 64,976 haplotypes for genotype imputation
We describe a reference panel of 64,976 human haplotypes at 39,235,157 SNPs constructed using whole-genome sequence data from 20 studies of predominantly European ancestry. Using this resource leadsExpand
