GRASP: Genome-Wide Repository of Associations Between SNPs and Phenotypes


Now Accepting GWAS Results Submissions

to find out details on how to submit results in conjunction with your publications

GRASP includes all available genetic association results from papers, their supplements and web-based content meeting the following guidelines:

  • All associations with P<0.05 from GWAS defined as >= 25,000 markers tested for 1 or more traits.
  • Study exclusion criteria: CNV-only studies, replication/follow-up studies testing <25K markers, non-human only studies, article not in English, gene-environment or gene-gene GWAS where single SNP main effects are not given, linkage only studies, aCGH/LOH only studies, heterozygosity/homozygosity (genome-wide or long run) studies, studies only presenting gene-based or pathway-based results, simulation-only studies, studies which we judge as redundant with prior studies since they do not provide significant inclusion of new samples or exposure of new results (e.g., many methodological papers on the WTCCC and FHS GWAS).
  • More detailed methods and resources used in constructing the catalog are described at the "Methods & Resources" page.

Funding Support

The construction and maintenance of the NHLBI GRASP catalog was supported by NHLBI intramural funding mechanisms.
