This GWAS dataset, ADC13, is the thirteenth set of ADC genotyped subjects used by the Alzheimer’s Disease Genetics Consortium (ADGC) to identify genes associated with an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Provided here, are the PLINK genotype files that have undergone ADGC quality control procedures, imputation files (.bgen format) run through the TOPMED r2 pipeline, as well as basic phenotypes as provided by the Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project Phenotype Harmonization Consortium (ADSP-PHC) derived from data provided by the National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center (NACC). Additional phenotypic data are available for request through NACC. The ADSP-PHC has harmonized additional domains for the NACC participants and for more information about available data and where to request access, visit the ADSP data page (ng00067).

The ADC13 sample set was genotyped by the Center for Applied Genomics at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia using the Illumina Infinium GSA-24v3-0_A1 BeadChip which captures genotype data on 654,027 genomic SNPs. The standard Alzheimer's Disease Genetics Consortium (ADGC) quality control pipeline (Naj et al. 2011) was applied to this GWAS dataset.
