Genotype imputation is potentially a zero-cost method for bridging gaps in coverage and power between genotyping platforms. Here, we quantify these gains in power and coverage by using 1,376 population controls that are from the 1958 British Birth Cohort and were genotyped by the Wellcome Trust Case-Control Consortium with the Illumina HumanHap 550 and(More)
Genome-wide association (GWA) studies have proved extremely successful in identifying novel genetic loci contributing effects to complex human diseases. In doing so, they have highlighted the fact that many potential loci of modest effect remain undetected, partly due to the need for samples consisting of many thousands of individuals. Large-scale(More)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is three times more common in females than in males, suggesting that sex may play a role in modifying genetic associations with disease. We have addressed this hypothesis by performing sex-differentiated and sex-interaction analyses of a genome-wide association study of RA in a North American population. Our results identify a(More)
