Experiment summary

The dataset described on this page represents a meta-analysis of intracranial aneurysm genetic associations from two East Asian cohorts. These results were also meta-analyzed with European-ancestry results, and the cross-ancestry meta-analysis is available as the "Intracranial aneurysm GWAS" dataset. The results of the European-only analysis are available in the "Intracranial aneurysm GWAS: Europeans" dataset.
