What will this project use my information for?

With the information you give us by answering surveys and your DNA, we can do genetic association studies. We are trying to understand how genetic mutations cause diseases and how genes interact with the environment to result in diseases. 

Which genetic variants will be genotyped?

The sample VCF file (19.5Mb) UM_GenesforGood_v1.2_genotyped_variant_list_sample_vcf.txt contains preliminary information about the genetic variants that we will genotype for each participant. Since the genotype data will undergo extensive quality control, the final list of informative/genotyped variants might be somewhat smaller.
